Need to Counterweight a couple of Rods
you could flatten some egg sinkers or whatever to fit into a new butt cap, or buy a 'system'
edit: same fuji system as you mentioned, plus one from mudhole...or just get the end cap and make your own weights
The up side is they have three interchangeable weights you can adjust.
Not a lot out there for aftermarket balancers these days.
If the rod was already finished, I'd use a thin bladed saw and carefully cut off the end of the rod. Save that piece.
Then I'd figure out how much of the tail end of the rod blank it would take to get all the lead in. I did this by pushing in a wad of cotton and add the shot, pushing the cotton farther and farther up the rod blank until it all fit. Once I got all the lead in, I'd tape it and try the feel of the rod with the reel in place. If it was satisfactory, then I poured the shot back out and mixed up some slow-cure epoxy. I then pulled the cotton, soaked it in epoxy and reinserted it in the blank slightly deeper than before.
Then I'd add a little bit of shot, pour a little bit of epoxy, add a little more shot, more epoxy until all the shot was in the rod. Then I'd epoxy the cut off handle back in place and tape it securely and stand the rod (butt down) in the corner and let the epoxy cure. A little sanding was usually needed to clean up the epoxy where I reglued the grip, but then I had a counterbalanced rod....
