|Good question. My dropshot for up to an ounce is on a cabelas 8-20 lb, 10 ft rod and with braid and that length, it sends it flying and has good sensitivity. I think 10-25 sounds good. I would think something like a calstar grafighter 800xl might be a good choice. I have this older ( but not vintage ) lamiglass 9 ft blank that i will one day build...its a moderate-fast action rated 10-30. I bet it would be perfect for that 1-2 ounce range. I agree, if your fishing braid, a more moderate action and even an old vintage glass rod like a roddy, lamiglass, or whatever would be fine if the tip portion could handle the weight. It might even help to prevent rippin lips on the soft mouthed species like halibut, especially with braid.
Let em go and let em grow
