I struggle to cast 1/16, 1/8, 1/6 oz lures/weights with my rod that is meant to cast 1/4-3/4 oz (feels more like a 3/4-2 oz). I have this idea, to add a very sensitive/flexible tip, maybe 6" - 1' out, which will bend and help cast very light spinners and spoons. It's made of fiberglass (i think) and is about 3.5 ft long, and about 2 mm thick. It is flexible enough to double up and make a loop, maybe even tie a overhand knot. It's super sensitive and I think it would aid in casting tiny lures and weights, but the problem is how to add it on, or if I should add it on. Wrap/glue it on like people do with line guides? I would also need to add on 1 or 2 guides on the end. And opinions?
