balancing is an individual thing.  It depends on where YOU hold the rod/reel.  There is no standard.

the center of where your hand holds the rod.for me thats the center of the reel seat.i think formost people that would be correct since most people palm the reel.also if you balance to the center of the reel seat then the rod will balance with any reel.

I add weight to the rod butt to balance each rig according to the reel weight /style and how I hold that particular rig. I also balance it according to the presentation I use with a particular rig.
