My heaviest combo: Zillion 801MHRB-G+Luna 103L+30# J-Braid@17.9oz balanced 3" in front of spool center
Lightest: MSX 65ML+SS SV 103HL+15# J-Braid@9.6oz balanced under spool

Both rods have Fuji EZ-Keepers, both reels have after market handles/added bearings, fully spooled with line.
Cast baits, not doubts.

Conquest 843c: 110gr/3.88oz

Megabass X7 Destruction: 135gr/4.74oz

2013 Orochi XX Tour Versatile: 168gr/5.92oz
I was surprised by the Tour Versatile weight. Feels much better than that in hand.

3.95 oz for the 802 JWR C. Lighter than the older IMX but balances terribly with a market average 7 oz reel.

The GLX 844C is 7ft, 4 inches longer but only .07 oz lighter but it balances much better on the 7.16 oz Zillion SV TW.

Put a few on the scale today. Some old, beat up rods, others brand new in my arsenal.
Kistler Helium 3 7' ML spinning Fast 107.28g/3.78oz
Kistler KLX Frog, Jig, worm 7'6" H mod-fast 137.68g/4.86oz
Kistler KLX Feel-n-Reel 7'M composite 103.36g/3.65oz
Lamiglas MB841E-H 7' MH custom E-Glass with a 2nd coat of flex coat on her 153.76g/5.42oz
Swampland/Seeker 7'2" MH custom S-Glass 136.33g/4.81oz

Don't laugh, but I bought a couple Academy Classic series glass rods that I'm thinking of tearing down and rebuilding.
Got 'em for $11.28/each :lol:
7'M- 5.06oz
7' MH 5.48oz
