Drop-shotting is a finesse technique that puts the bait just off the bottom and keeps it there where the fish can see it. They can't stand to have it hang there, wiggling enticingly right in front of their nose. The rods we use for this technique feature extra-fast actions, but the tips are light so the angler can impart a subtle wiggle to the bait without a lot of wasted motion. The soft tip also allows the fish to eat the bait without a lot of resistance. The magnum taper allows the rod to load up so quickly that once you lift it, the fish is hooked. NRX adds yet another dimension to the technique with incredible sensitivity. When a bass touches the bait you know it!!
