Re: Reels to balance a rod?
The really important thing to balance is the weight of the line being cast to the power of the rod. THAT balance is why there are so many overlining/underlining questions and one that is not possible to answer for another person.
It all depends on the amount of line one like to keep in the air prior to the final cast. Which in turn is determined in large part by how far away from the fish the fisherman like to be. Whch is often determined by what he is fishing for and where and how, and is also tremendously influenced by how long the head is and what sort of taper it has.
Pegboy, cheeze and rice ! , put up what state you're from.
