Default Re: Reel Balance - An Objective Truth or Personal Prefernce?

Balance to me means that if after a long day of fishing I don't feel like I am worn out the combo is balanced. Usually if I can balance the rod on my finger, somewhere along the handle, I consider a rod/reel well balanced. Weight? I don't care, I fish mainly Bamboo and if I can't fish it all day long I better find another hobby.

All that being said, I don't usually fish more than a 5 weight. That opinion might change later this year when I target Steelhead with a switch rod.


Just my $.02,
Pete
