Very well balanced

falcon bass fishing rod

A lot of bass fishing rods, spinning rods in particular, seem to be very poorly balanced these days. It’s great when a rod is lightweight and sensitive, but if you put a reel on it and it doesn’t feel good in your hands… that’s a problem. I’d also argue that balance is much more important with finesse rods compared to bulkier power-fishing rods.

The Cara Spinning Rod is beautifully balanced. I’ve been using a Daiwa Tatula LT Spinning Reel while testing this rod and I think you’d be hard pressed to find a better combo for serious finesse fishing. A lot of lightweight rods seem to be a bit butt-heavy to me but I haven’t had this issue whatsoever while testing this rod. I don’t feel any undue fatigue while fishing it and it handles and pivots beautifully in my hand while I’m imparting small movements into my finesse rigs.
