That doesn't make sense.
Me either. Shorter rods in the 6' and shorter don't seem to have balance issues and the only rods that I ever used that were tip heavy were rods 6'6" and longer, especially the 7'+. Before I make any suggestions, what kind of fish and lures/baits are you going to use with the rod? I have a rod that is a casting rod with a full cork grip, it is light but the balance is off as it is butt heavy, it is a fantastic jig rod but trying to cast a spinnerbait side arm or underhand and it feels like the rod weighs 10 pounds but because it is butt heavy there isn't much I can do about it but I don't want to since it does do a super job fishing jigs. If you are going to be using live bait I can see were you may want more weight on the back but if you end up with a reel that is too large it will hurt your casting ability as the line is really going to drag the stripper guide and that will hurt distance and sensitivity due to the amount of friction on the guides. Your best bet is to use the appropriate size reel and then go to BPS and get a balancing system.
