*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.

Lets see here... new Sage ESN reel or Finn Fly Rod Balancing Kit? Maybe instead of the Sage ESN go for its cousin the Redington Tilt? Lots of dough and I have to invest the time in the line reload. Given all that trying the Finn Fly Rod Balancing Kit was a no brainer. At worst I would be out a bit and have a story.
My cool package from Finn arrived with its three bracelets of weight. I got out my 11" Syndicate 2 wt that was proving to be too tip heavy for all my reels. Between my wife's annoyance with what I spend on fly fishing stuff and my annoyance with the line change deal I was really hoping these little jewels' would work. Work they did!
I popped one on. I loved the audible "snap" that gave me comfort that it was unlikely to fall off during the day while I scrambled around high bushy banks on the Deschutes River chasing fish. One wasn't quite enough. I popped on the second. Viola! Perfection. At 65 a balanced rod is a BIG deal to help me and my aging arms fish all day without fatigue.
The difference is amazing. The look is elegant. The whole package shows the attention to detail that we crazy hard core fly fisherman crave in this sport. Consider me sold and happy!
I was skeptical at first, but bought a set based on what I heard on the MO on the Fly Podcast. Oh boy am I glad I did. This things make a huge difference in casting, greatly improved my ability to deliver flies farther and more accurately. If you don’t have a set of these you are messing up.
Wondering where on my rod and reel is the balancing point?
Finally -- A lot of today's " higher end" reels and even rods have simply gotten way too light to balance properly. Before now I was using those slip on chair tips with quarters in them to achieve better balance. Great product , and thanks for the Walts Worm -- wish i could get some more of those !!
Glad to hear it! THANK YOU!
Performs as expected.
