I purchased the Shake 7 last season for my drop shot rod. I was a little hesitant, as I like a sensitive rod for finesse and that usually comes at a higher price point. I have been more than happy with it to say the least! I own many ALX rods and they have never disappointed. The Shake 7 is sensitive, light and has the perfect action for smaller finesse applications. This rod handles northern giant smallmouth with ease.
Great rod for NED rigs, drop shots, or any light weight finesse technique. Plenty of backbone to to get a good hook set but soft enough tip to play aggressive fish!
I love this rod! This is a finesse fisherman’s dream. Service with ALX is great to. Had this rod break and was covered by warranty. I have three ALX rods now and plan on buying more.
