Default Re: Rod weights and Common Cents

This is an interesting thread. If I had read it several months ago, I may have done some things differently. I had a fast action, 6 wt rod from a major US rod maker of whom I am a big fan of their slower action rods. I used that rod many times and simply couldn't get it to do the job I wanted it to do. I'll bet this system would have revealed that the line size I was using wasn't a match for the rod. Either the rod was mismarked or the line was. I'm thinking of investing in a grain scale, anyone have any experience with using one and which one is best for the money?
