Default No size on fly rod

I have a fly rod that does not have any weight listed on it. Anyway to determine the weight? Can a fly fishing shop figure it out? I also have one that needs repair, any repair shops in Denver that someone could recommend.

I would think there would be more than one guy on this forum that has a problem with no size on their rod. In all seriousness, take it to your local fly shop and ask their opinion. Probably the easiest way to find out.

It is a method used to determine the weight of a fly rod based on the rod tips deflection to a certain distance by the amount of pennies it takes to get to that deflection.
