Crucial drop shot rods

Recommended Posts

I currently own a 6'6 M/F St. croix premiere spinning rod I use for all my small soft plastics (senkos, shakey head, grubs, tubes etc...) but it just isn't sensitive enough for me.  I have been looking at the crucial drop shot rod as a potential replacement.  I just can't decide whether I should get the 7'2 med or med hvy.  *** recommends the med hvy for fishing deep water, which is something I do not do a lot of but I do sometimes.  Any help would be appreciated or if you think I should go with the regular crucial spinning rod.

Regular Crucials in those lengths have Fast actions, there is no DS Medium power in 7 '2", it 's Medium Light power with a Fast action, the MedHvy is an ExtraFast action rod.

Many would find a ML rod too "light" for most applications.

I have an old spidercast rod that is a med light which I tried for these apps and did not like it at all.  I am leaning towards the 7'2 med hvy.  Also has anyone used the crucial flippin stick?

So a 7' medium action rod would be really good for using drop shot?

Thanks,

I have the 6'8" MH DS rod and the 7'6" flipping stick.  They are both great rods but  I will not throw a shakey head on my DS rod.  They are classed as a MH but it has a very light tip to aid in the drop shot technique.  I would personally go with the regular series of the crucial spinning ( I have the 6'6" MH spinning that I use for shakey heads).  The flipping stick is pretty sick.  I have two of them and would recommend them to anyone.

I own the the 7'2" M Crucial DS Rod.  I use it for all light line applications.  Small jigs, small jerk baits, small wacky rig, Drop shotting, and I also use it for trout.  I'm not a big fan of using it in deep water, I've had hookup problems.  For the price and warranty, it's a sick rod.... you'll be happy

Ok so other than shakey head fishing this rod can do more than just drop shot.  Thats good to know.  What about the sensitivity?
