Crankbait series

Post by zac08 » Thu Mar 24, 2011 2:15 am

Anyone else here who likes these rods?

I have a CBR 783 and this is a one piece 6ft 6in rod which is rated for 8 - 14lbs and is one of my main rods though transportation always gives me a headache. I can't stand using the other fast rods and this is one sweet mama which has a smooth loading curve and loads well even with small lures (rated for 1/4 to 5/8 oz).

I have a CBR781 and a CBR903. I've been a fan of the Crankbait series since their release. The are a lot slower action than most Loomis rods. Designed for Crankbaits, they are a forgiving blank and great for using with braid. I just gave the 781 to my son-in-law for a flathead fishing. The 7'6" 903 is pretty rare down here, so I may hang on to it. Production stopped a few years ago however there ares still a few available.
