Re: Pics of most balanced high end rod please

pretty sick arsenal Thanks, man. I know they're not exactly high end, but I couldn't be happier with them. They're sensitive and the tapers are excellent. I hooked a hell of a fish with the 65L/Alphas Air combo yesterday and it was handling it like a champ, but she took a hard run under a golf cart...

Re: Pics of most balanced high end rod please

And a few others: Those pics say a lot about those major craft rods. Light weight pretty well balanced and underrated. Nice stuff. That's what got me hooked on them. They're very well designed and constructed. The only one that's really tip heavy at all is the frog rod, but it's still pretty balanc...

Re: Pics of most balanced high end rod please

I got TT autocorrected earlier and didn’t notice. ](*,) My most balanced combo is an Imakatsu Rodeo Ride built by Designo that I got from a member here with an upgraded steez sv. 9.3oz tw. Balances under the reel. In the pic the tip is slightly up and my finger is the only place it can rest without...

Pics of most balanced high end rod please

If you don't mind, please post pics of your most balanced setup showing where it sits on your finger. everybody seems to have their own version of "balanced" so the best way for me to know is via picture. anything from nrx, conquest, xtasy, steez, k2, etc would be nice. much appreciated!!

Re: Dobyns xtasy or kistler zbone

I have a 755 Xtasy and a 7-6 LE-5 Z-Bone, 2019. While i like the full cork and balance of the Xtasy, if I'm going to throw a 10 or 12 in worm I will always pick up the Z-Bone, it's got that "electric" feel. Not that the Xtasy is a slouch, I guess I just expected a little more. Going to give the Xta...

Re: Rod Weights

What the hell :laugh1: I need to see that 7'11 Glass Rod on a scale, I don't see how these numbers are possible. I just weighed my Endurance 765 CF Utility which they claim is-3.7 oz. It weighed in at 4.7oz with the wrapper on the cork on my food scale. They must have used 1oz of plastic to protect...

Haven't had time on the water with them yet but they feel a little on the heavier side. What i mean is they are light but for other rods that price point they do lean towards the heftier side. But i didn't get a chance to put a reel on it. Only felt it in the store.
hmmm. so far not so good
