    Take a look at Steve’s equinox counter balanced carbon fiber shaft with the counter weight. I have it and love it.
    If you don't look for it you won't find it!! So get out there and dig it.

    I second that suggestion. Steve’s Rods are excellent. I have the counter balanced one with the adjustable weight on the back.

    I would definitely recommend a carbon shaft with counter balance. I made my own, very easy to make and has made a huge difference. Before I found the Nox nose heavy but now it is very well balanced and feels much lighter.

    I’m also a fan of Steve’s a carbon shaft. The video showed unscrewing the end cap Bud didn’t show the bags of shot that goes inside it and when adding the shot you can control the amount of weight to match your coil and also the length of the rod. When I’m on the beach I extend mine and have about a seven foot level swing and using the counter balance it balances it out because of the longer length.
    But it counterbalances so good you don’t want to use the counter balance when in the water because you will have trouble keeping the coil down with the waves and yes the counter balance helps that much.
    The cam lock works awesome and you don’t have to mess with that stupid pin to push in , it’s infinity adjustment.
    It also help extend you detecting time because your arm and shoulder will not get sore.
    The quality is above par.

    I have one of Steve's rods and 2 extra lower shafts for the other coils. They are awesome! Btw, if you decide to order the counterbalance inquire about the shorter version. I opted for it and have used other's who have the full length and, at least for me, I chose wisely (Indiana Jones reference there). Steve is a great guy and will take care of you!

    THANKS, Bill! I appreciate the kind words!

    Yep, different sizes and weights of counterweights are needed, for different folks. No doubt about it. I try to "custom fit" each person, depending upon specifics/needs that I try to glean from chatting with each customer. I'm glad the shorter/lighter tube proved to be the right one for you!
