Balancing rods

For example I’ve got a tx2 shimano rod 11ft 2.75tc and a daiwa crosscast 5000c carp reel and everyone says it won’t balance but it doesn’t feel bad at all ? 

If you are happy with it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks bud 👍

I don't think it would be too unbalanced though,

I don't think that's unbalanced tbh. Some might say the big reel would feel better on a 12 or 13 ft rod but it's no big deal imo.

The balance needs to be more with rod,line and hook rather than rod and reel. in the case of carp fishing most of the time they are sat on buzzers and only used to wind in or cast.

a floater rod and reel may be different however as you might hold that one a lot so having it as light in the hand as possible is a good thing
