A sensitive Torayca® carbon blank with the backbone to set the hook and the power to tame big fish makes up the backbone of the W3 Dropshot 2nd Generation rods. The two-part SKS reel seat is extremely light and offers direct contact to the 1K woven carbon reinforced blank for maximum sensitivity. The blank is made with a super soft solid tip giving more feel and improved bite detection. The flat rear handle is designed to rest on the under arm during fishing for improved comfort and stability. Details like the unique hook keeper also make a big difference. When using a typical dropshot rig simply slide the line and tighten up to hold the dropshot sinker in place, eliminating tangles when moving between spots.
