Default Re: My real rod weights

Rod Length Marked Measured
Cabela/Cahill 9' 0" 5wt 6.075
Echo Shadow PE 10' 0" 3wt 4.716
Olympic Glass 8' 0" None 7.097
Redington CPX 9' 0" 3wt 4.865
Sage Z-Axis 8' 6" 5wt 4.895
St Croix Avid 9' 0' 4wt 4.534
St Croix Imperial 6' 0" 2wt 1.065
St Croix Legend Ultra 7' 6" 2wt 2.223
Walmart Black Eagle 8.6" 5wt 4.126-4.895 (6 of them)

These are some of mine. Most are close. Some are way off.
I used the bag of shot/postal scale method rather than pennies.
On the ones that were way off I repeated the measurements several times.

(Does anyone know how to make a table here that looks like something?)
