i keep reading that for throwing crankbaits a moderate action (not medium power) rod should be used. the only rod that i can find is a st. croix legend at 230 bucks. what i have been looking for for years is a decent priced moderate action, med. power 7 footer for walleyes and smallmouth. does anyone know of a rod like this? would an alternative be to go with a longer medium light. seems that most rods these days are built as a fast action.
