I recently had a Custom built Diplomat in a 7'2" length for Drop-shotting and casting 3.5" Swim baits for Smallmouth Bass...Caught a nice bass on the first cast...nice XFast action with surprising backbone...great rod!
I love this rod for drop-shotting mean smallmouths in the Great Lakes. Love it so much, I had to add a second one! I have braid on both my reels, so I can also throw small cranks and poppers with this rod.
