Anglers have heard the claims for years - graphite rods are too stiff and react too fast for fishing crankbaits effectively. They claim fish can't inhale the lure like they can with the heavier, slower, more sluggish glass rods, but material is only one part of the formula. Design is by far the most important aspect. Our philosophy? Use the dynamic features/advantages of graphite (sensitivity, light weight, faster recovery, etc.) to make a really good crankbait rod. We just do it with higher modulus materials - in this case, GLX - creating rods that are EXTREMELY light, responsive and sensitive, with soft actions that are everything you want a great crankbait rod to be.
GLX 845 CBR
When you need a little more power for casting larger crankbaits, this is the rod you’ll want. It’s very light, and thanks to GLX, so sensitive you can feel a big bass watch your bait! It's responsive and recovers quickly when a bass decides to dart under the boat or jump. If you like a slightly longer jerkbait rod for larger baits, this is an excellent choice. It's responsive, sensitive and resilient... a great rod for all but the largest crankbaits.
GLX 783 CBR
A really good, all around crankbait rod designed to throw medium-sized crankbaits of all sizes and shapes. It’s handles the mid-range diving baits exceptionally well, especially when fishing around docks and the edges of heavy cover. It's quick, accurate and light as can be. GLX lets you know if and when a bass engulfs your offering because they just don't get anymore sensitive than this and that makes it a great choice for small jerkbaits as well.
