Lol. I'm just saying most of the top anglers prefer the 4000 size reels. I've talked to Seth Feider about it. They will take the trade-off of the additional weight of the 2500 vs 4000 size reels for the larger spool and better drag.
I have a 3000 certate and a 2500 stella and I can't tell the difference between them when casting.
My 901 will be here Friday, I will put my stella on it and see if it will outcast my Flyssa/Certate combo
I noticed that also, but I've never tried a 4000 size reel for bass fishing.
I will try a Vanquish 4000 if someone wants to buy me one though haha.
I've pretty much settled on 2500 size shimano and 3000 size daiwa spinning reels except for ice fishing, that when I use
500 and 1000 size shimano's
The build looks excellent, epoxy and strait guides, typical NRX cork, balance is good for a 7'6"
Its definitely softer in action compared to the Megabass Flyssa and the balance is the same, the 901 is a little whippy.
I would not consider this blank to be a extra fast action, it more of a fast action, this blank loads deep.
Its gonna be fun to fish and getting a nice fish on this rod is going to be a blast...
Does balance refer to how you hold a rod or how it balances on 1 finger?
I hold my spinning rods with the stem of the reel between my right ring finger and my pinky.
I hold like this dude LOL
