The finesse technique of dropshotting is exceptionally effective for the most finicky fish. This rod was initially intended for the dropshot technique, but has expanded to Ned Rigs, Shaky Heads, Finesse Swimbaits, and Neko Rigs. When light tackle and graceful presentations are the name of the game – our dropshot rods answer the call. The tip of the rod is very light for setting the hook with lightwire hooks and with a couple of quick turns of the reel, the rod takes care of the rest. The carbon fiber grips allow the angler to “see” underwater for the most subtle, finicky bites – leaving nothing to chance.
