I just purchased a medium Berkley amp rod for my 7 year old son for around 20 something bucks on Amazon and I and my son love it.I don't think it could be beat ...more for the price,it has a very nice feel to it.
I had a $79.00 shimano 7' sellus jig/ worm rod with sedona reel combo that was pretty darn sensitive and well built compared to much more expensive rods I lost ...more it in the Delaware river unfortunately I do think the Lews and diawa and pfluger combos are very good aslo
may sound a bit odd but I use the lews laser zr speed spool im6 graphite combo its a baitcaster combo for 79 bucks at Wal-Mart I use 8lb line dropshot setup catch ...more lots of fish on dropshot, I felt a bite 25 feet deep off a less than 1 lb bass that I caught on the last trip with slight wind, it holds up with a 4 lb bass no problem, and its something you could put other baits on
for 30 bucks a complete bass kit Shakespeare catch more fish spinning rod combo for bass. bought one for my daughter looks great great reviews, would work with a ...more dropshot just fine. it comes with gear some Berkley powerbait weedless hooks, dropshot worms and jigs

I love my St Croix Mojo Bass Spinning rod. It's 6'9" Medium with an extra fast action. It is super sensitive. I like the extra fast action because I ...more can shake and shimmy the worm without actually moving the weight.
Well I dont have a lot of dropshot experience but have a finesse fished a lot. I have 6'6 medium pflueger trion which is an awesome rod but it comes in combo ...more for 60 dollars but the reel is pretty good too.
