Fly Rod Balance
That the rod must have strength is sufficiently plain. Balance, the question whether the rod fits you or not, is one of the things to think of when selecting a fly-rod.
It is quite certain that, no matter how good the rod may be otherwise, if it does not suit you, is not adapted to your particular method of casting (every angler develops an individual casting method), if it is a little too heavy in the tip, or possibly a shade too heavy in the butt, or if for any reason the rod does not feel right to you, it is a much better plan to choose another rod than to try to accustom yourself to that particular rod's peculiarities. The chances are that if you try to get used to the rod, someone else will eventually own it, or it will occupy a very permanent place in the rod rack.
