Comments: Definitely the right casting rod for drop shotting. Shimano nailed it again. Although it may not feel as light as the previous cork handled model, the new Black Eva does just fine is more visually appealing in my opinion. I got the 6'11" length and it casts a mile with the Core and 8lb test. The tip is just right for shaking the slack. The blank itself is super sensitive and can detect even the slightest taps and ticks. If you're fishing with tungsten sinkers, the feel with transfer up the line and into your rod as best as you've ever felt. It also has plenty of power to control fish. My biggest fish this year an estimated 7 pounder and this rod tamed it without any problems. If you've never drop shotted with a casting outfit, you should give it a try. It just feels so natural.
