My hunt for big perch on the spinner will be underway as autumn falls. I currently have fox 13lb braid on.  I'm just not getting on with it. It splits easy and doesn't knot so great. Can someone who does this type of fishing recommend a good braid and what lb braid I should use for my target. Also , I have a fox warrior spin 8g-25g cast weight. Would this rod be sufficient for drop shotting? A method I'm yet to try but eager to. Thanks

I have ultra light set up for spinning and small lures and shads, I use spiderwire braid in 10lb for that and I find it excellent braid no problems with it at all.

As for the rod I can't really help you there mate I've never done any drop shotting. 

Good luck with your perch fishing mate.

Thanks finchey. I put 13 on just in case a stray big pike was to take my lure. But I'll have a look at spiderwire , thanks . What is a shad? Do excuse me, I've never fished this way till recently

You'll be fine with 10lb braid it will handle pike as long as your using a wire trace. 

As you can see from buzzbombs photo a shad is a small rubber lure.
