I've often wondered about this and know this is the place i'll get an answer.. just looking for generalities here..

 

how much do the components, thread and finish of a rod weigh?

 

lets say i have a 10' spinning blank that weighs 8 oz... how much would the fully built rod weigh? approx?

Here are some weights (in grams) of items I have lying around. The real surprise was that the less expensive Pac Bay guides are actually lighter than the Fuji Alconite. icon25.gif

When building a GSB120L I weighed the blank then when finished weighed the finished rod. With the blank at 8 oz. the rod weighed 13.8oz. This included corkwrap fore & butt with shrink wrap overlay,#20 Fugi reel seat, Fugi BSVLG 50,40,30,20,16 & 16tip. Fugi dr. knob 7/8 butt cap, 2 coats flexcoat,double wrap A & D thread with 6" butt wrap. Feel very light in hand when balanced w/ reels of 18-21 oz. Hope this gives you some info.

If you go to Lami's site you ought to be able to compare the weights of the blanks to the weights of the finshed rods they sell.
