I fish a beefed up drop shot a lot in Texas around stumps and trees, using 10-15 lb test and rigging the worm weedless Texas style on the hook, with 1/8 to 1/2 oz weights. Either pitching to shallow targets or casting it in deep water, the DX742 is super sensitive and so well balanced that it is easy to fish all day. Enough power to bring in big fish, yet enough tip to cast light rigs with baitcast reels and play good fish on lighter line.
