So I was talking with a fishing buddy of mine today about how it is better to have a spey rod counter balanced by a heavy reel, as in balanced in general. This got me thinking of ways to really dial in the balance until it is perfect, which is mostly a preference to each individual angler. This especially makes sense with a lot of the more modern reels that can be extremely large which is good for spey and yet extremely light. I was wondering what some of the ways to add weight to a reel are. I was thinking of maybe some very thin lead impregnated line or something like that to wrap on the reel under the backing, or even tungsten type line if that is available. Do you guys have any of your own tips or techniques for adding weight to reel? It seems like a little dialing in could go a long way towards making a spey outfit even more easy on the body.
