what do you guys think
do you think it pointless going to drop a on a six string?

millions of players don't.
no i dont think so, and its not all just for metal, like an open G tuning is where you drop both E strings to D and yeah, the zepplin song Kashmir is in that tuning,

but yes for metal and rock its very popular and i like it, it is very heavy and chug, if you dont like that then dont drop it haha

If I needed to go to Drop A, and I didn't have a 7 string, then yes I guess I'd probably do it.

I wouldn't say pointless, but it's something I wouldn't do often. I occasionally play in Drop B
i think drop C is the lowest you should go with a 25.5" scale and like big strings, if you go any lower you should get a 26" or 27" scale guitar or a 7 string

Drop A is better suited for a 6 string baritone or 7-string (or 7-string baritone).

this isn't to say you couldn't set up your 6 string with regular scale length (24.75 would probably not be the best choice by regular scale length i mean 25.5) as long as you put on thick strings and set up the guitar properly. because if you think about it, in general, most 7 strings (at least until recently when baritone scales have become more popular on 7's) have 25.5 scale so if you use a standard 6 with 25.5 scale and drop the high e and set up the guitar properly you could definitely put it in drop a.
