I have two drop shot rods: a Falcon CS-4-169M, 6'9" and an Impulse IMPS610M, 6'10". Both have about the same medium action. The Falcon costs around $200 and the Impulse around $235. Both are very good spinning rods for drop shotting. I use 20 lb braid with a 7 lb flouro leader. I'd be hard pressed to say which one I like better, but might give a slight nod to the Impulse.
