*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.

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.
Glad it is performing as expected!
Rod balance is not a new concept in fishing it has been used in fishing for years. This product is bringing it to the forefront of fly fishing which needs it as much or more than any other type of fishing. I tested this product and can say that it has and will continue to amaze me in how much it help getting the fly where you want it to catch more fish and look pretty slick doing it.
Thank you for the review Darrell. We love what you are doing with Missouri On The Fly Podcast!
I purchased a rod and reel sight-unseen over the phone. Everything was great until I started fishing and realized the setup was tip-heavy once you had line off the spool... so compared to the alternatives (unspooling my reel and adding weighted tape; selling my reel and replacing it with a larger size) this seemed like the fastest way to add a little extra weight to balance out my setup.
I have not had a chance to test it on the water yet, however the magnets definitely seem strong enough to stay on during fishing, and they don't seem to get in the way of my hand. I like that it's not permanent, so I can easily add or remove weight as needed to multiple rod setups. Overall this seems like a good solution if you need to balance out a setup without spending a lot of time or money in the process.
Thank you for the review! We are glad to hear how our solution worked for your needs.
