Once I pick it up, I know it’s on and those big lurking bass have no idea what’s about to hit ‘em. Long story short, this is one of the best all-purpose flippin’ rods out there.”

As Big Show travels around the country he encounters much more than just the heavy vegetation of Florida. Throwing crankbaits is one of the oldest and most productive techniques in all of bass fishing. You can bet Terry has one ready to go no matter where his travels take him.

“Y’all—this CB906 is a good one here—it’s a phenomenal crankbait rod for lipless and deep divers because it creates incredible distance with longer casts, while using the 7’6” length to pick up more line. This casting-cranking rod is going to get it done on Major League Fishing’s Bass Pro Tour for sure.”
