Comments: I bought the 6'8" drop shot model hoping it would feel similiar to my curamas. I was disappointed. My biggest complaint is the location of the hook keeper. I'm not sure about other people but the hook keeper is right where I place my index finger for sensitivaty and while casting. The hook keeper should have been placed on the bottom of the rod to keep it out of the way. I'm having to alter the way I hold my spinning rod because of the hook keeper. I'm thinking about just cutting it off completely. The rod is also not that sensitive. I think the tip is too soft to transmitt a good feel. I have cheaper other brand rods that are more sensitive. Thought about moving this rod to my crappie rod collection. It might make a decent crappie rod. I still love my cumaras but was totally disappointed with this one. Stick with the cumaras. Even though they cost more, you won't be looking for a replacement any time soon.

Comments: I purchased the 7-2 drop-shot rod and have hauled in dozens of fish with it. Very light and sensitive, and has great action for hook sets. It's quickly become one of my favorite rods. Awesome bang for your buck here between $100-110 ... I might have to buy more Compres. Can't go wrong with the lifetime warranty too.
