Based on a thread of Tigger's "a few hours out..." which has slipped from catching to rod reel choices I've started this thread.
I've often wondered how centrepin anglers change reels rather freely on the same rod. I've always been keen on what I call perfect balance (on my expensive equipment). I don't think I ever had a combination that I approved of that a reel or rod could be interchanged satisfactorily.
Balance is a "personal choice" and certainly not the same for every angler. For example, I have (had) one rod and reel I used for 1/4oz and lighter lures that I almost always used a Wallis cast, admittedly slightly modified. It was only a 6 ft rod.
Carp rods the same. If it's not in perfect balance in my hand I would just as soon use a $30.00 combo from Walmart.
