Default Re: Why oh why is the Hardy CLS so heavy? Ugh!

Just put the Hardy CLS 5000 on my Greys XF2 9foot 5w. I put on line and backing and th balance point is exactly at halfway of the cork grip. I can live with a but heavy rod but it does balance perfectly rigged with my 8w, 9 foot GRXI+. I think maybe the were made to European standards where they do use longer rods.
Either way I was thinking of getting another reel for smaller lines anyway. Still waiting to see what they come out with for the new year.

I just like to reiterate praise for Islander Reels.
