    I just balanced a setup a week or so ago. The lightest in the set was 519.5 grams big end, 228 grams small end. This set was very close in weight across all eight rods. In fact, all the magnum rods I have done have been very close.

      Damn, thats some fast specific info right there! IIRC magnum rods little ends are a shade more narrow than LA's for the restomod crowd.

            Would still weigh it all. Never assume that another set will be the same.
