Balancer weight kits for rod buts???

Recommended Posts

Meat-Run

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!!

      15-23 inches in most areas  Don’t drive through the narrows on blue headed towards little blue you will sink your truck.

      So I don't usually fish for pike often with tip ups and I'm just wondering if dead suckers work well? All of mine died literally after 1 day and it seems a shame just to toss them away, especially when they cost $6.50/dozen

      Try cross-country skiing, fat biking and more
      Winter may have gotten off to an especially cold start in 2018, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of it. For an introduction to snow sports, stop by the annual Winter Trails Day extravaganza at Fort Snelling State Park on Saturday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adults and kids can try cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, fat biking, ice fishing, quinzee (snow shelter) building and archery. Other activities will include ice harvesting, storytelling and an ice globe demonstration. Guided nature hikes will also take place every half hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between activities, visitors can enjoy hot cocoa around a crackling bonfire. Activities will be set up near the beach area. “Winter Trails Day is about helping people warm up to winter,” said Kelli Bruns, park manager at Fort Snelling State Park. “The cold weather months are more fun when you find an activity you can enjoy alone or with others.” This year, for the first time, sign-language interpreters will be on hand to help make the day’s activities more accessible to those with hearing disabilities. Stop by the registration tent for more information. Winter Trails Day is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, retail co-op REI, the U.S. Forest Service and Mississippi Park Connection. Use of skis, snowshoes, fat bikes and other equipment will be free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks and recreation areas ($7 for a one-day permit or $35 for a year-round permit). Save time, get vehicle permit in advance
      Although permits are available at the park, people attending Winter Trails Day can avoid waiting in line by getting their permit in advance. Visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit. For more information, call the park at 612-725-2724 or visit the Fort Snelling State Park Web page at www.mndnr.gov. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
