Dropshot rod recommendation

Post by keeponchucking » Wed Mar 18 2020 08:59

Fishing into dark last night and stupidly caught my rod in the door of the car.
Looking for some recommendations on a rod around similar quality as my previous rod (westin w3 streetstick 2-7g)
Would like to maybe get a bit of a longer rod up to 7ft 4inch.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

If you've only bust one section it might be worth seeing if the manufacturer will sell you a replacement piece.might work out cheaper than buying new

Two sections got it. Couldnt have done more damage if it tried. :(

Friend has suggested this rod to me also. He has 0.5-7g lrf one and swears by it.
Going to have a look at the weekend to see how it feels.

The 7'4" MX version is the best of the bunch in my opinion. Wouldn't part with mine for love nor money.

The 2-10 StreetStick is a cracking rod. 7ft and about inch or 2 I think. Great for DS as well as finesse fishing.

Just as a follow up to this. Was using my mates 0.5-7g lrf one.
Really happy with the sensitivity and feel of it. Had a number of pike on it up to about 6lb also.
He himself is upgrading his rod so i just got a bargain on his old one. Result.
