Just kinda wondering what everyones favorite brand/style cranks were? I need to get me some when springtime gets here and try to make myself use them and gain a little confidence with em'. Anyways, From shallow runners, to mid-runners, to deep divers....which ones do you guys like the most? DD's? DT's? hotlips? Rebels?Etc?

Those three are some fish catching cranks without having

to pay $15 or $20 for a CB...

So i'm guessing I won't really need any deep divers for the most part while trying to fish some cranks this spring, right? Shouldn't need anything over say 10-12ft at the most, right?

ShadRap SR5 & SR7 in silver/black (firetiger if water stained).



Change front hooks to a red Daichi. Notice how many times the fish will be hooked on the front hook!
