The Kranken series is one of our first dedicated technique-specific rod series, boasting a primarily graphite blank with a fiberglass tip designed specifically for the use of crankbaits. Whether running squarebills through shallow stump-fields or deep-cranking for lock-jawed winter bass, the Kranken series is up to the task. The taper allows you to feel every wobble and bump of your crankbait, while the composite material means that even more aggressive hooksets won't lead to you missing an eat or ripping your trebles out of the bass. The series is rounded out by Fuji guides and a split handle with cork grips.


  • Action: Moderate-Fast

    The way a crankbait rod is supposed to feel!

    Published by Shane Frady on 5th Feb 2020

    This rod has it all! The glass tip and medium action combine to make a great rod for running crankbaits. Paired with a Crius 5.3:1 and you'll be hard pressed to find a better combo for the money.

    Crankbait Rod

    Published by Clarence Neese on 1st Feb 2020

    Purchased this rod specifically for crankbait fishing this fall. I paired the rod with an Abu Garcia Rocket reel. Been fishing deep all fall/winter and the rod has proven to be a great investment. Thank you Six Gill Fishing!

    It’s great other than one minor thing

    Published by Blaize on 5th Jan 2020

    I’ll keep this short. I love everything about the rod other than the fact there seems to be a lot of movement in the reel seat with my crius reel on it. I noticed every time I was reeling in a fish of any decent size there was a lot of play in the reel/reel seat. I’m not sure if this is something normal on sixgills part as these were my first sixgill purchases and that was the only rod I’ve caught fish on so far. I did double check to make sure I had it locked down good which I did. It’s not a major breaking point but it is kind of annoying when reeling in a fish and having all that play in the seat of the rod.
