EVX b Series Rod, Cranking Rod is a two 7-foot crankbait rod featuring the slowest actions in the lineup at moderate/moderate-fast. Expect smooth, long casts with the rod generating a lot of line speed. The rod delivers great feel as the lure action resonates all the way through the blank. For hooksets, just continue cranking through the strike and sweep the rod in a long arc rather than snap-set. Youll find treble hooks deeply buried in jaws and keep fish buttoned up all the way to the boat. For deep diving baits, the medium heavy is the choice, rated for 10 to 20 lbs. line and 1/4 to 1 oz. baits.
