So I have been thinking of buying a finesse fishing casting rod to add to my arsenal.  The TFO Gary Loomis Tactical Drop Shot Casting Rod looks great in my opinion and has all the specs that I would like for a simple finesse fishing rod, but the only issue is that it is made for drop shots and not finesse.  Will this rod be good enough for finesse fishing?

Another thing is, which rod would you prefer for a finesse presentation, the Lew's TP-1 Speed Stick IM8 Casting Rod or the TFO Gary Loomis Tactical Drop Shot Casting rod(both medium light with a fast action)?

Thanks!

That TFO will fish anything finesse. I have one, it's a pretty decent rod.

Don't worry so much about the technique labels that manufacturers put on their rods as often it's just a marketing tactic to get you to buy more rods.  A lot of times you'll see similar numbers on a rod except one will be like 2 inches longer, and each will have a different technique on it.  They're trying to get you to buy both rods when one will work fine for both techniques.  Pay more attention to the Power/Action/Lure Rating and see if it'll work for what you want to use the rod for.
