The Powell Max Composite Deep Cranking Casting Rod was designed by Elite Series pro and Tackle Warehouse prostaffer, Jared Lintner, for fishing crankbaits that run a minimum of 8ft in depth - all the way to the biggest, deepest diving crankbaits you can find. Its composite glass and graphite blank offers the sensitivity of graphite with the parabolic, moderate-fast bend you need for fishing crankbaits. Most crankbait rods max out just from the action and drag of a deep diver, but Lintner and Powell designed this one to have just the right bend to fish a deep diver properly, and still have enough in reserve to hook and fight the fish. Stout but super forgiving, it allows you to really make solid hooksets and suction those treble hooks into the fish.

Its parabolic bend also helps you cast your bait a mile, which is very important when fishing deep diving crankbaits, because it takes a while for them to get down into the strike zone. Another important feature, it is also very light for being such a big rod, which is not usually the case. You can fish it all day and not wear yourself out. Exclusively available at Tackle Warehouse, the Powell Max Composite Deep Cranking Casting Rod has all the features you need for fishing big deep diving cranks.

Comments: Just got the rod today.  Can't wait to fish with it.  To answer Jake's question, the rod weighs 6.4 oz.

Comments: Does anyone know what his rod weighs in ounces? Several reviews says it's light. Just wondering how light is light? Thanks,

From: Jake: NC

Comments: The very best cranking rod you could ask for.  Not only can it handle deep divers, but it can also toss lighter crankbaits a mile.  The first thing you notice when you pick it up is how surprisingly light it is and balances nicely with a lightweight low profile reel.   This was my first Powell rod and I will be buying more.

Comments: I was looking for the perfect crankbait rod and I found it. This rod is simply amazing. I was surprised at how light it was. I paired it with my Curado E5 and it's light as a feather with perfect balance. I couldn't be more pleased with a rod than I am with this one. Casts far, sensitive, light, strong but forgiving. I would consider it a steal even at this price. Super Rod!

Comments: Liked this rod so much I'm buying one for my dad for fathers Day.  This rod really helps you sling the big cranks out there where you can get them Deep!

From: Zach: Spartanburg, SC

Comments: very light for its size. slightly softer action than my 8' powell crank rod (same line class).  fished it for the first on LSC this, i put 14# braid on this to cast long distances crosswind on big water and landed all 5 fish i hooked on a very inactive bite (2 didnt even hook in the mouth).  handled SK #5s very well. even landed a double. KVD tripple grips probably helped on that, but didnt pull any hooks even with the braid.  i would highly recommend this rod!
