The lightest 13-14' rod for throwing 4-5 oz. well once you get over about 12'8" your options drop quick. I would have to say the PurGlas 400-2, 13'2" rated 4-6 oz, will throw from 2-6+ with good distance.
Led, I don't have a scale in the shop so this is completely unscientific, but.... I just compared the weight of a 400-1 blank and a All-Star BGSW1418 and in that requard they are very similar. The wieght of the All-Star 1418 is stated as 10 3/32 oz, so I would put the 400-1 right around 11 oz. I couldn't find mfg. specs on the blank weight of the PurGlas, if I can get my hands on a scale I will post more accurate weights.
you need is another rod!!! If you do get another rod; then sell me one of those used ones you have; the ones that still have the UPC stickers on the handles. They should be sold fairly cheaply; since they have been heavily used. Just shoot me an e-mail and tell me which one you want to get rid of!!! pelican man.
