and why do you feel you must have a spinning rid for drop shotting and shakey head?
I don't, and they take up too much room on your deck!
Let me guess: First in your family trees with opposable thumbs and you just must fish with them?
Ha! I'm kidding both of you; I have been saving that "line" for just the right opportunity.
Seriously, though, any top pros you know of who don't use spinning tackle for the drop shot? And, since we are capitalists and believe in the motivation of money, why would they use tackle that in any way jeopardizes their winnings? If they are finesse fishing with 6 or 8 lbs. fluoro, they are likely using spinning reels.
