In route to winning the 2008 Elite Series Bassmaster Angler of the Year Award Kevin VanDam put on a crankbait clinic tournament after tournament. Whether it was ripping lipless crankbaits in Florida or deep cranking in Kentucky, VanDam consistently put up big weights with a crankbait.

Customer Reviews

From: Jonathon: TN

Comments: I consistently hit 22 feet deep with the 7' 10" 12 pound p line fluorocarbon 6 XD crankbait and a KVD 5.3 reel.

From: John: TN, USA

Comments: I have the 7ft and the 7'10 and they are amazing crankbait rods never lost a fish that i recall.

From: Jase

Comments: I have one of the 7'10" and i love it . It can really sling the 6xd's! i recommend this rod to anyone!

From: Lucas: Glasgow, KY

Comments: Love these Rods. I have used the 7'10 Launcher at Fork and have been able hit the bottom in 22ft. with his 6XD.

From: Andrew: Waco, TX

Comments: Be careful not to step on the end of the handle while moving around on your front deck. The ends of these rods all have like 2 inches of extra foam that will come off easily.  It happened to me so I balanced each of them.  I am glad I did.  These rods were horrible as far as as balance went.  Other than those two issues I have no problem saying that the rods performance is FLAWLESS.

From: Tom: St Joe, MI

Comments: Ive had the 7'4 for about two weeks now and love this rod. I have been using 1/2 to 3/4 oz. traps on it and have landed all but one fish. The action lets me cast a long way and it is an accurate caster too. Saw a buddy land a 5+ on this same rod with a tru tungsten 4inch swimbait. Very versitile rod.

From: Caleb: Indiana, USA

Comments:I use the 7'MH for 1/4 to 3/4 oz. rattle baits. I have never lost a fish on this rod.

From:Michael: Crawfordville, GA

Comments:I bought 3 of the 6'8" medium and a 6'6" medium light - excellent crankbait and buzzbait rods! As good a quality as any other rods I've bought in the price range, but better performance than a lot. Paired up with fluorocarbon this is an excellent cranking setup.

From:JP: Texas, USA

Comments:First off I'm a big fan of KVD. But this is no $150.00 rod, maybe in a price range of $90.00 to $100.00 would be more realistic. The reel seats feel cheap & overall the feel of this rod isn't very good. But this is a decent rod just over priced. Maybe KVD is getting those custom rods made & were buying something else.
