Looking for suggestions for a baitcasting rod for using a drop shot, with 14-15 lb flouro, 3/8 to 1/2 oz weight. I have an older Cara that is a 6 and 1/2 foot 5 power rod. It worked OK, but I felt like I might need more tip. Only rod I had with more tip is a 7 foot MH crankin stick. Not enough feel for my taste with that rod.
I have a 6 10 bucco finesse jig rod. Anybody used it for this application? I would try it, but it is in plastic wrap and if I put a reel on it, Im stuck with it.
I use a spinning rod for light line drop shotting, but wanting a baitcasting setup for heavy line situations.
Any sugguestions appreciated!
