Default Re: rod-reel balance...help

I had a 9', 6 wt Avid with the same Tioga reel. It balanced fine, IMO. I was told to check rod balance with the rod strung, and 5 or so feet of line out. You'll also find the Avid to be a very nice, forgiving rod. The Tioga reel is well made, with a good drag.

I have other questions of my own re: balance as I'm trying to find a suitable reel for a new 10' rod. I'll be back later. Gotta run.
