Rod Review


CB Rod Wars Part 15: A Powerhouse of a Cranking Rod, the 8 foot Powell 806CB (continued)

 

Lab Tests: Before heading out to fish this big cranking stick the 806CB was taken to the lab for tests on our RoD WRACK. The 806CB was right in line with the heavy powered cranking stick average and though heavy in weight this is somewhat expected of a rod of this power, and we actually found the 806CB to be lighter and better balanced than the previously tested 754CB in the lab.
