Megabass Hyuga 6'4" L = 3.55oz

Heavier than my old Jackson but just as light in the tip.

I don't have access to a scale, but I'd really like to know the weights on the One 3 Defy & Fate series. I've had the 7'9 Defy Black crank rod for a couple of months and could swear it feels lighter than the Omen 2 7'1 MH. I just got in the 7' M Chrome crank rod today, and that thing is a feather. It also balances on the lockdown with a sub-7oz reel.
