Default Re: Difference in weight of built rod from mfg's specs

Must be the components. I weighed my 9' 5wt TFO BVK factory fly rod and it came out to manufacturers specs- 2.9 oz. Yet I weighed my Winston BIIt 8' 3wt with a factory weight of 2.125 oz and it weighed 2.7, so different manufacturers use different ways of weighing. A shame really. (I don't think the nickle silver reel seat and box elder insert could make that much of a difference?).
