About to do my 1st dropshot & jigging session this weekend & have spooled my 1000 size reel with Daiwa X4 9ib braid.

Is there enough on this or is it underspooled?

Don't forget to wet the spool before any casting, this helps to avoid wind knots which are common when using braid and casting any distance

When wetting the braid, some anglers dunk the reel in the water. depending on how shielded the bearings are, this can eventually knacker the bearings, especially on the rotor.

Over fill and you will get problems!
Good luck with the new set up

Looks fine. Any more and I think you'll start getting problems. Good luck with your drop shot session.
