Looking to add a couple of ounces to a reel to help in balancing a rod. Read previously about adding lead to the spool before adding the backing. Is this the simplest way?
Any advice welcome.
A couple of questions. How are these reels as a spare/backup? And which one would you use for the 13' 8/9 rod, the 8/9 or the 10/11? I like around 200 yards of 30 pound backing, a running line and shooting head.
Thanks for any comments, Leo.

I am looking to fill a reel approx size of loop classic 9/11 for Chinook fishing and have been advised 40lb braid is suffice.
I am looking for suggestions of reasonably priced backing approx 250/300yds.

Could somebody recomend and comment on backing and running line for big salmon ? (targeting 30lbs plus).

Does anybody use Guideline PE backing and can compare it with dacron and gel spun backing? I am fishing the Skeena river in August and have been advised to load my reels with 200 yards of 30lb backing for the steelhead. Currently my salmon reels have 30lb dacron - not that I've seen it very...
