Looking for a new drop shot rod to go with new spinning reel.. Anyone ever try denali lithium drop shot rod. I currently have a diawa tatula elite cody meyer. I like it. Have had a Powell and Fenwick elite tech. Thanks for feedback

I use a 702 Dobyns and it has doubled well as a weightless Senko/flukes rod as well.

I have Kistler KLX and a Kistler Helium 7’ ML, and I really like them both. Both with Daiwa Tatula 2500’s.

I use a Dobyns 702 HP baitcaster rod and it works very well. You don't have to use spinning tackle for a drop shot.

Power Tackle now makes one of the best drop shot rods I’ve ever had in my hand. LPC 400. Perfect balance of backbone and tip.

I've been using a Skeet Reese DS rod for about 15 years now. I've caught a lot of fish with it up to 6.5lbs. Not the most expensive rod out there but works well for me.

Nrx 822dsr Is what I use for open water drop shot its a true drop shot rod with a ton of sensitivity some how.


Most of the time I use a drop shot I cast it to the bank and into stuff so I use a Nrx 872s jwr, Its got more back bone than the dsr rod, its a fantastic rod for lots of things soooo sensitive you will not miss a fish. I use them for weightless fluke, senko, trick worm and wacky.


Dont try and take someones shine away..... Doing so just shows YOUR weak character.

I’m cheap and run the fury model but it’s done everything I ask of it. Have a couple 4 and 5lb fish so it has plenty of back bone.
