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.

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.
