*We still recommend getting an appropriately sized reel for your rod to ensure it can hold all your line and to get your initial weight in the ballpark. For instance, start with a 5wt reel for a 5wt rod or use a heavier reel for a 3wt euro nymphing rod.

Works great

I’ve used all kinds of home brewed methods for weighting my fly rods for the purpose of balancing. Outfit balance is paramount to me. Nice to have a product that addresses that. The weight stayed in place even after vigorous casting.

Smart design

This kit is exactly what I needed to balance out my fly rod while using my favorite, lightweight reel. I noticed a difference right away and I feel like I have better control with less effort than without the weight. Strong magnets and coated weights to assure I won't damage my rod while using them... They don't move once in place. If I need to change reels, I can quickly remove or add weights as needed, no fuss. Excellent product, very well thought out, and highly satisfied. Glad I took the chance, no regrets, all positive. Thank you

balance is good

I am in a very busy fly casting teaching group. We see about 150 caster per month.
Yes that number is right! It has gone as high as 200 and as low as 100. But is a lot of folks. And we run into a lot of unbalanced setups. Mostly two handed setups. So the Kit has been very, very valuable!! It make folks believers.

Great Idea

Falls a little short with universality

These looked like a great idea to quickly fix hand fatigue. I wanted to use these for my switch rod and spey rods, however, they would not fit the diameter of the butt section. Also, I ponder the reliability of the magnets. Time will tell if they hold with adequate usage. I placed them on my 5 weights. Need to get some use out of them on the water to put these to the test.
