Balancer weight kits for rod buts???

11 posts in this topic

I thought I would start here in this forum first but I think the Bass Heads will hopefully chime in and help. I'm looking for balancer weight kits for my fishing rod that is heavy action and slightly heavy in the tip. I know BPS and Cab have them but it's geared more toward there own branded fishing poles. What I'm looking for is the insert and weights that can work on a heavy action rod?

Anybody know of a brand name or company that sells them? Thanks for any help or leads?

Fuji EWBC Weighted Butt Cap. You'll need to remove your current butt cap or turn down the cork on the end of your rod, then expoxy the new butt cap in place. Weight is handled through some included washers.

DaD,

I did a google and came up with this product but I'm not sure if there is enough weight to do the job? Do you have this kit or system or know anyone that has used it?

Go to a store that has office supplies.. and buy a chair leg cap(they come in a lot of different sizes so get one to fit your rod.)... put as many quarters in it till it weights the rod nicely.. then always remember you have a an extra dollar or two when in need. cool.gif

Are you talking about the "Rod Balancer"? If that is what you are talking about yes there is enough weight to do a heavy action rod. And if you need to add weight just add a couple quarters in there also.

The product you are looking for is called "The Balancer" it sold by bass pro for $6.99. You go to the bass pro web site and search for the balancer and it will come up. I have them on most of my rods. I am a big fan of a balanced rod for several reasons but the two main reasons are sensitivity and arm fatigue that occurs much sooner if a rod is not properly balanced. Pick some up I am sure you will be pleased. Good Fishing!!

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
