nice list... but just what are these g's you refer to... lol

Just kidding, I think I use google more for gr to oz conversions than I do for actual searching the web...you'd think I would have a good idea of what's what by now. :D

my new gloomis NRX852S weighs 106 grams or 3.7 ounces; slightly more than what the two other 852Ss in this thread were listed at. i wonder if it has anything do with gloomis' semi-recent switch away from the 3M powerlux nanoresin? of course, it could simply be individual rod or scale variance...0.2 ounces is practically nothing.

daiwa zillion flipping stick ZIL761HFB (the new model): 4.5 ounces

(for what it's worth, the zillion and tatula flipping sticks—although they share the same ratings—are vastly different in feel...the zillion is much more like a traditional flipping stick and is very stout; the tatula is much crisper and fishes more like a regular casting rod :( i'm bummed because i traded in my tatula flipping stick—which i loved—to get the zillion flipping stick believing they shared the same blank but with better components on the zillion)
