Black max rod official weight?

Recommended Posts

I have no clue.  But, you've piqued my interest...why do you ask?  

 

Can't say that I've ever wondered how much any of my rods weigh.....just curious...

Yeah I doubt you will find anything on that.  That's going to be a heavier rod for sure with cheaper material used in the blank.  I wish the tackle companies would list their rod weights.

I ask because I want to buy a dobyns fury rod which is 5.7 oz's (I've been told ). I already own a black max rod and wanted to see how heavy the black max is compared to the dobyns.

Yeah I think it will be heavy also just curious how it compares to some rods I want to buy.

Rods I own that are light are a Quantum Smoke at 3.4oz.  The Duckett Ghost seems light probably under 4oz.  Quantum Exo PT makes a 6'8"M model that weighs in at only 2.9oz.  That's the lightest 6'8" "off the shelf" rod that I am aware of.  I think most of your 7' rods will be around the 5oz mark unless you spend over $200.

Wow 2.9 that's light... Yea I want to buy the dobyns fury rod 7'3" mag heavy for punching and frogs but it's 5.7 oz's I was wondering if that heavy or not for a 109$ rod

I'm sure that's fine.  That's a monster heavy duty rod.  You're not gonna find a punching/frog rod that weighs 4oz.
