I have purchased a xcc 903 rod and have used it once and am not sure it was the best choice for drift fishing. Would this rod which is described as a good downrigger rod also work for river drift fishing for kings and silvers. I own an older g1310t which I like but is not as sensitive as I would like and a custom lamiglas all fiberglas rod which is sensitive but is on the heavy side. I use both and they have worked but I wanted something more sensitive and lighter. If the xcc 903 isn't a good choice which rod would be better.
When a rod is describbed as a downrigger rod what exactly does that mean, I don't own a boat with downriggers and have no experience with them.
