Exactly. Weight is now more of a marketing thing than a practical thing. People get way to concerned with weight. I own a pile of rods and I have never weighed a single one of them. I might weigh my 17'er just for giggles though.

Some of the rod-building videos I've seen always made me wonder about weight.

It looks to me like some of these videos put an ounce or two of epoxy on the handle and reel seat.
