A sad conclusion...

Recommended Posts

For the price, action, and durability, a 7' medium action spinning Ugly Stick is probably the best rod for drop-shotting on the market.

That's not sad at all; I'd be thrilled if I felt that way about a bargain rod.  Unfortunately for me, my Steez drop-shot rod is my favorite  :-/

I guess the sad part is I will still get another Loomis one. Senko77 and I were at BPS in Foxboro yesterday and messed around with Crucial's, Cumara's, Diawa's, Croix's, BPS's, and realized it.  ;D

Tin, it's not Senko77 anymore. I think it is Grave Robber.

Ugly Sticks are super.  You can't break them and they are relatively cheap.

I love mine for pond fishing and catfish fishing.

As for drop-shotting, I like any medium heavy brand name, be it Shimano, All Star, BPS, Loomis, St. Croix, etc.

Just a good name brand that is medium heavy, be it a spinning rod or a baitcaster rod as I use both when drop-shotting.  ;)

I like the medium or medium-light actions. With the Gammy Split Shot/Drop Shot hooks and how smallies have tough mouths it seems like it just pinches the smallie and if you horse them and don't give them control over the situation they will throw it on you. I have yet to find a hook that will allow me to land 100% of the smallies I reel up on and give me control over them. It's just a double-edged sword I guess.

I love the Loomis one's but $260 is just nuts imo, and the Cumara is too stiff for my liking. I'm leaning towards a Crucial though, just want one bigger than 6'8".

RYAN!!!! Why havent you sold him on the 702ML XF?!?!?

You know its the best dropshot rod in the world! Booger, try the owner mosquito in a size 1. thats what i reel set with (braid) and landing ratios for me are very very good.
