Default Re: Reels to balance a rod?

I have a premium 9' 5wt, and liked it much better with a reel that is an ounce heavier than the original. The Borgers have been saying balancing a reel makes no difference in casting distance, and they use a robotic device to demostrate this. I'm sure the robots were glad to hear this, and if they had pockets, well.... I'm not a robot, and my tendons feel the difference when reel weight is varied.
