*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.

Great concept, but execution is flawed

Love the concept, this was the only easy solution that I could find on the internet, for an already spooled reel. I am trying to balance a fiberglass spey rod, so bought 2 sets (6 pack). I lost 4 of these by the time my day on the river was finished. The magnets aren't strong enough. Wish I still had them! I will try something else of my own design. If you could get a more secure connection these would be fantastic.

Great concept....but

Great concept and works well until they fall off. Magnets could and should be stronger

Nice peoduct

Lost 1 of 3 on 1st use. Just a little too tight a fit for 3rd

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
