G. Loomis Drop Shot Spinning Rod - $260.00 to $270.00
Comments: Just took the 822 out for a spin on Berryessa, teamed it with stradic ci4 2500 and man what a great combo from sensitivity to power. Smallmouth from 5 inches from 3 pounds felt like a giant, you couldn't miss a bite if you tried.

Comments: I fish many times each year and finally decided i was going to purchase a nice rod for drop shotting, my favorite technique. When i first fished my g. loomis i instantly felt that it had pretty good sensitivity, however after hooking a few fish i felt it lacks the backbone to handle bigger fish. Also, on the ride across the lake with my rods all strapped down the tip broke off the rod, i have never had that happen to any other rods in my life. I called the warranty and everything with no luck, good luck getting your rod replaced unless your looking to spend 100 plus dollars to get another one. In my opinion i opted out and ill be looking for another rod, plenty of rods out there that are better for considerably less money.

Comments: My favorite rod by far. The sensitivity is unreal. I've caught many huge small and large mouth bass with this rod. It is well worth the price. I have the spinning real rod, not sure how the casting one works.

Comments: The mag-light version feels super refined and ultra sensitive... I pair it with 4 pound flouro and a stradic 1000. I drop shot mainly for smallies in the great lakes and this rod definitely has enough power to land the big boys... You just have to play them out a little more carefully... It feels crisp and strong when fishing and I like how this light set up telegraphs strikes effortlessly, I mean seriously, when the fish bite, you know it immediately with with rod!

Comments: I currently own three G Loomis 822s rods and are very pleased with their performance. I dropshot alot for smallmouth at Lake Champlain, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario at depths from a few feet down to 40 plus feet. I have caught numerous smallmouth in the 4-6lb range with these rods and never have questioned the backbone power these rods possess. The power and sensitivity in these rods are a perfect match for bigwater bronzebacks. Would I recommend these rods, did I mention I own three?

Comments: I used the DSR822S for two years of dropshotting. I love the sensitivity of the rod. But it lacks power to control bigger smallmouth in the 4-6 lb range. I do not recommend this rod if you will be getting into the bigger fish.

Comments: Absolutely love the 822S for drop shotting CA's deep gin clear lakes. Excellent sensitivity with plenty of backbone.
