First, I want to say that I am a proud and happy owner of the orignal XPS 702 Drop Shot Special rod with which so many bass have fallen victim.
I am curious to know which rod(s) (both casting and spinning) in your line up would be suited for using the drop shot technique in heavier cover, say in grass or on the edges of weeds and pads, etc.?
I would probably be leaning toward using a casting reel. Thanks!
