The Balancer™ Rod Balancing System
Any of you ever watch the TV program called “Hunt for Big Fish” starring Larry Dahlberg? Well, on one of his shows he demonstrated how he balances his long fishing rods with a weight kit he designed and is sold by the Bass Pro Shops. I have a 7 1/2 ft graphite flipping stick that I have tried to use for about a year and it was very uncomfortable to fish with. I personally preferred to fish with my 6 1/2 ft. medium heavy rods. Well, for fishing heavier baits like swim baits or big topwater plugs I wanted to use the longer rod, but for the above reasons I just couldn’t force myself to do it. A few days ago I was at Bass Pro Shops to buy some stuff and decided to purchase the “rod balancing system” they sell. It comes with instructions on how to balance your rod. I fished with it yesterday almost all day long and you wouldn’t believe the difference it made. The kit makes the rod feel lighter and it enables you to set the hook very quickly. I’m glad I bought it! Looks like this rod will be used much more in the coming months. In my opinion, it’s well worth the $8.99 I paid for it. Click on the picture of the kit above for more details.
