Hey guys, I'm in the market for an additional drop shot casting rod and want to know what you are using.
I currently use a Falcon Cara Weightless worm rod and it does fine but I wanted to see if there are other options that I may like better before I go buy another falcon.

I'm using a Falcon Bucoo 6 1/2 MH and it works great. The Bucoo MH is more like a medium.

I have a TFO 6'9 Medium casting rod which works great. I've found TFO rods to be a little lighter than the stated action so this might be more ML. I've caught some good fish in timber and around docks on this rod so it has decent backbone. I see that TFO makes a drop shot specific rod but I use the regular bass rod.

Duckett 7' medium crankbait rod.......trust me!

Dobyns made a good one too, 701c, but they no longer make it in casting.

+1 Ron builds a great drop shot rod. I was also using a Falcon Cara until I tried one of his. You'll love it.

thumbDuckett medium action is about as good as they come. Spinning rod or bait caster, this action works great on drop shot. Very sensitve, using 20# power pro and fluoro 10-12# leader.
