Airflo traditional

Do you know what the grain weight of the head is on this line ? Or can you weigh it ? I don't remember but if it is around 870 grains I would be interested in it.

Traditional

The data I have says that the 7/8 Traditional has a head length of 82 feet and weighs 650 grains. The 8/9 is 84 feet and 725 grains. The 9/10 is 85.5 feet and 800 grains. The 10/11 is 87 feet and 900 grains.

Skilly.... I'll weigh it tonight, but i did measure the head at around 80' but it has a fairly long back taper so that is variable... I was casting the tips version with the type 3 tip on this weekend on my st. croix 14' 8/9 and seemed to lay out some nice loops. Wasn't a really deep load on that particular rod though.
