Have you ever needed a hammer, but used the back of a screwdriver or something similar instead?
Yes, it did get the job done, but it would have been a lot easier to use a tool that was designed specifically for that purpose.
The same is true when it comes to crankbait fishing. Yes, you can use any fishing pole to get the job done, but you will enjoy fishing more and perhaps be more successful by using the right tools.
In this post, we will discuss what makes a good fishing rod, the best crankbait rod.
What is the best crankbait rod?
G. Loomis IMX-PRO 843C Cranking Rod
- Power: Medium
- Action: Fast
- Lure: 1/4 – 5/8 ounces
- Line: 8 – 14 pound
- Length: 7 foot
New to the cranking scene is the G. Loomis IMX-PRO 843C.
What G.Loomis was able to do with this option is they created a lighter fishing rod, but still have the power and agility to take control of the fish. In fact, the IMX Pro blanks are 15 percent lighter.
This model is available in a number of different lengths and action/power combinations.
For example, this series is available in a 7foot option, great for fishing with lighter lures and making more accurate casts. On the other end of the spectrum, you have an 8-foot extra-heavy cranking rod. This option works well when fishing those larger crankbaits.
I personally really like the 843C model. It is a Medium power, fast action and it comes in at a good length of 7 feet.
I have found this rod to be a good all-around crankbait rod, but it works particularly well when ripping lipless crankbaits through the weed line.
There you have it, some of my favorite cranking fishing pole on the market.
What fishing pole do you like to use when fishing with crankbaits? Which one do you think is the best crankbait rod for the money? Feel free to share in the comments below.
