I weighed one 2 years ago when I was comparing it to my Allcock's 'Harvey Torbett' ... it was 11.1 ounces.

Interesting! I'm intrigued to know why you're asking about rod weights so might I ask the reason??

Also, rod weights make more sense when one also knows the handle length!!

So are you trying to find a lighter cane rod?? If so, I find ones with a longer handle feel lighter because of the balance!!
