Re: Lightest 2wt blank
When rods are near 2oz or less, Gross weight is less important than taper, length, and weight distribution.
Case in point, my Redington CT 762 is lighter than my Echo Carbon 732. But the Carbon is significantly lighter in swing weight. I use a 4 oz reel to balance my CT and a 2.2 oz reel to balance the Carbon. It's quite noticeable.
