Re: rod-reel balance...help
cliff, i put the reel with line on a 5wt sage and it balanced just about where you said. the rod is eight and a half feet, and the avid i am looking at is 9.
with the avid, it is american made, and as a newer flyfisher, i think that a mod-fast may be a bit more forgiving. however, i am open to ideas. thank you for the reply.....rich
