Default Re: Matching Rod to Reel

There is way to much made of balance and what stuff weighs now days. I have said many times in the past that it is almost impossible to seriously toss a rod out of balance with a reel that is even slightly rated for rods somewhere in the vicinity of what the reel is for.

I have also said a seriously large number of times that what a rod weighs is being highly blown out of proportion.

Do you have either the rod or the reel now? Try it. In fact try and make the rod so out of balance you will even notice it casting and let me know what kind of monster reel it takes to do it.

If you have the rod, and don't have a giant reel, try hanging weights off the reel seat till you get it grossly out of balance. Let me know how much weight it takes.
