David Fritts is known as one of the best crankbait fishermen on the planet. The Fritts combo features a one piece IM6 premium graphite 7-foot moderate action Crankback rod matched with a Lew's 5.4:1 gear ratio Speed Spool baitcast reel. Fritts has long sworn that the 5.4:1 gear ratio delivers the perfect cranking power for deep divers and heavy baits, and he has the trophies to show for it. The rod is built to Fritts' specified action to serve as an all-around single great choice for fishing a variety of "crank back" lures, including crankbaits, lipless crankbaits, spinnerbaits, buzzbaits and swimbaits. He has custom-tuned the blank to the perfect parabolic action he prefers for making long casts and feeling what the lure on the other end is doing.
