Very nice rods Radivoj, both the blonde and the flamed rod. Merry Christmas and a good start into 2014.

RSA,

Just curious, are you finding the Para 15 tapered rod to be a bit tip heavy? Or, are you using a heavy reel to offset that?

Thank You Goduster smile.gif Flaming was done with the heat gun. Not a big deal...only 3hrs of "pure patience" wink.gif



Thanks Juergen smile.gif

Bill, this taper is meant to be used on rods for bigger waters and longer casts. Being parabolic the tip is inevitably feeling heavy, much heavier compared to..for example to Payne or Dickerson's rods... But it's ok for me,.. I'm used to this kind of action. In combination with Hardy Marquis #6 reel(not a very heavy reel...) works great for my style of fishing.

Hi rsa,

I have a Para 15 tapered rod as well. I'm not ok with the tip heavy feel so I bought a screwlock seat from Lemke that actually weighs 1.2 oz with the insert. Also put some leadcore line on my Marquis #6 disc reel. This little bit of weight pushed the balance point to 1/2" in front of grip with 30' of line out and the setup doesn't feel heavy at all. Just wondered if you have made any modifications to make this setup more comfortable.
