Re: Reels to balance a rod?
I think that "balance" between rod and reel is important, but only to a point.
What happens when the position of your hand ("the fulcrum" if you will) changes on the grip and is not on the top end of the cork?
I say the top end of the grip because that's the most commonly accepted and used grip that most of us started with. Over the years my hand placement on the grip has shifted from the top end of the cork all the way to the bottom where it's just slightly above the threads on my reel seat (down locking).
