8ft 6in Dropshot Rod

The E-Sox 8ft 6in Dropshot rod is ultra-sensitive, light and purpose designed for dropshotting and fishing with light lures.

e-sox dropshot rod 8ft-6in

The 8ft 6in (2.6m) Dropshot Rod is the longer of the two models currently available and ideal for casting weights from 4g to 20g. The extra length also allows you to tackle the far bank more effectively, yet still retains a good degree of finesse. The slightly more powerful blank is also useful for tackling much deeper water where larger weights are required.

The lightweight, slim, high modulus carbon blank delivers the necessary finesse for dropshotting while holding plenty of power in reserve. The sensitive tip action provides a tactile feel and the unbelievably fast blank offers excellent control of the lure, enabling you to strike at the slightest tap.

The rod is perfectly balanced when coupled with a small fixed spool reel and comes with a comfortable Fuji reel seat, stylish EVA split handle design and finished off with and our eye-catching Dropshot graphics. A shorter 7ft 6in (2.3m) Dropshot Rod is also available.
