Comment

Un blank "hors du commun" Par Philippe Cunningham le December 21, 2016

Un blank à crank "normal" c'est une nouille, un spaghetti trop cuit en fait. C'est volontaire, pour amortir les vibrations dans la canne, mais ce n'est pas marrant à l'usage, on s'ennuie à pêcher avec. Gary Loomis a réussi, avec ce blank, à faire 2 choses antinomiques : amortir les vibrations MAIS en gardant un blank qui lance, qui joue au combat et qui sèche les poissons dans d'excellentes conditions. Une pointe hyper mobile qui laisse à tous les cranks, PN, minnow (longbill et shortbill) une liberté totale de nage tout en amortissant parfaitement les vibrations, y compris des grands plongeurs, posée sur un talon surprenant de réserve pour un blank de ce type. Je suis devenu addictif au crank depuis que j'ai monté ce blank, moi qui ne péchais jamais avec cette technique avant. Attention, danger : ne pas toucher à ce blank, entraine une dépendance au cranking.

BEST ALL ROUNDER Par Mate Puskas le June 6, 2018

Guys, even it is designed to be a cranking blank, it is much more than that. Do not let the moderate action make you think it is a slow blank. it has a flexible tip which then followed by a good backbone, but all together works as a unit. Cranks is just one application. Lipless cranks..oh yes...this rod and its brother, the CB704SM can cast Sebile Flat Shad 66 to over 60 metres. But....this blank has also proved to be a very very good DROP SHOT blank too. Change the reel to a BFS style one, like mine a Chronarch 51e with a tunning shallow spool. Fill it with 8lb power pro and put even a size 14 feeder hook with a 1inch tiny pastic worm and a white plastic maggot with a 2g weight. shake it and catch zander and perch in times when they are not intersted in regular plugs or in plastics.. i accept that mb705hm is good. but this, as a rod, which can fish UL drop shot but also can cat and fish rapala dt20 which 25g and goes really deep. the only problem i had is to bring bigger catfsh up by force, lost few as it just did not want to come up and stones cut the line!

NFC CB-704-IM Par FORUM RODHOUSE le August 19, 2021

La référence ultime pour la pêche au crank... un blank avec un design unique, très complexe, avec uen pointe carbone hyper mobile mais un vrai talon. C'est un vrai blank, l'anti-thèse totale à la nouille souvent précaunisée pour le cranking...

Description

The ultimate crankbait blank : CB 704-1 IM

The 704 from North Fork Composites is a wonderful blank that will make you discover cranking and forget everything you may have heard or practiced before.

A full carbon blank, with a very original design (a very thin and long tip) which then passes into a real heel that will give both a very pleasant living behaviour and a surprising power reserve.
The CB 704-1 IM will throw all cranks up to 6-7cm (20 Grams approx.) and dive up to 4 metres.

Its range of use goes from a Mush bob 50 or B-Switcher 2.0 in low range to a Mascle deep 4+ or a B-Switcher 4.0.

 

If you have any doubts about this crankbait blank, do not hesitate to consult this article on the blog.
