Re: Lightest Rod possible

If rod weights less than 110g and it's shorter than 7'6" balance isn't important.
Balance point is so near reel, that anyone could handle that couple grams. "tipweight" doesnt matter.

Go to gym, if you cannot hold less than 300g set couple hours. :D

Re: Lightest Rod possible

I've build several 90-110g rods. MHX and NFC mostly. HM series blanks are very light. Never built Phenix K2 (yet!!!). Guides doesn't save weight so much, when you use less than 6 sized guides. Here's my own NFC MB 705 HM's guides. American Tackle size 3# micros as runners. http://i.imgur.com/tqhnzfx...

Re: My reel collection.

How are you liking the conceptA? Do 13 fishing reels compare to your diawa reels? It's A3. 300 sized low profile baitcaster. Don't have same size Daiwa or Shimano atm, but i had Okuma Komodo 364 and Daiwa Prorex XR 300 (300 Lexa) and i like A3 is better than those. More refined, sophisticated. Palm...

Re: One reel to rule them all

For all species? Daiwa Ryoga then. Pixy, Steez, Aldebaran etc are too "finesse" for pike fishing. Ryoga isn't!

Re: My reel collection.

Heheh, thanks!

I think next one is Calcutta Conquest (model B) 200. Then some Shimano more. Aldebaran BFS, Stile or Metanium MGL. I've got Antares DC, but sold it. Was too heavy for my purposes and still too sophisticated for a pike reel. :D

Re: NFC SWB 807-1 IM
