Use a GLX rod here, got s great deal on it. That said, drop shot doesn't require a great rod. If done right, the bass hook themselves. And mostly they do it before you can as well. Doesn't need to be super sensative. Just capable of sending a tiny hook, tiny weight, and roboworm a little distance.
Sometimes I use my Falcon Light rod and a 1500 size reel. Just for fun. Catches them just as well.
