Drop shot rod???

Recommended Posts

I haven't tried it yet, but I can't wait to pick up the 7'2" Carrot Stix dropshot rod.....And slap a Pflueger Supreme on it....

Other than a Steez/Steez combo it would be about impossible to find anything lighter.

I fish my drop shot on a Dobyns 702 C and sometimes on the 702 Spinning. Fun rod for drop shot and shaky head.

shimano Crucial 6'8" or 7'2" DS rod.  I have the 6'8" and love it!  Also works well for #5 Shad Raps and small, light plastics.

I'll second this.  I own the 7'2"M and love it.  It's great for an all around light tackle rod.  DS, Shakey Head, 1/4 oz jigs, small jerkbaits, even a trout rod.  Plus it holds a great warranty for the price and has a split grip (Not a big deal, but you don't see many rods in this price range offer the split)

I would say the 6'9" ML or 6'8" M St. Croix Avid or legend tournament.  They are both great rods, just depends on how light you go with your drop shotting.

I have fished both of those rods and you can't go wrong with either one.  You are just going to have to get to a store that has both rods, strap your reel on them and see how they feel.  Either way you will be happy. :)

Either is a great rod.  I have the 6'8 and it works great for #5 shad raps.  I caught 30 bass on that rod yesterday with a #5.  Oh yeah I've got a new stradic on it too, you will really love it.

This is going to probably be the only recommendation for this rod, but the lamiglas certified pro drop shot special I or II.  I have the I and it is a very awesome rod. It's so sensitive that it is almost not fair for the fish.  ;D

My favorite dropshot rod is an 6'8" medium extra-fast Avid.  Actually it's my favorite for any weightless/finesse plastic too.  I haven't fished shimano or loomis but a similar rod from them would be alright too.  The ex-fast tip is super sensitive and gives you a quick solid hookset.

I'm probally one of the few that will say this, but the Rogue 7'0" DS Spinning rod is a great Drop Shot rod. It's lightweight to me, super sensitive and the recoil guides are quite nice :)
