I just balance my loaded reels to rods for where I want the fulcrum point to be when not in casting use and don't try to convince others that my way is the correct way. Balance is in the hand of the holder.
However, every set of tackle I own will sit atop the point of my index finger with the line strung and a fly on the keeper. They balance right at the top of the cork just below the winding check
And that my friends is a beautiful thing
