hmmm, I must have been mistaken, the one I saw had almost a light-bulb or pear shape. Those look great FFT, how much are they?

I made a few that have a similar shape, but mine looks more like a bowling pin. I added a small egg sinker to the end and it walks the dog with ease! Sorry I don't have any picks though.

Has anyone thought to ask Blake Gills about the construction?

He invented the high roller didnt he?

I'd think it is tail weighted like toby did.

Blake gave me the entire rundown on the history of the Highroller a couple of years ago. Interesting story. Maybe we can get him to repeat it?

His original Highroller had the backwards shape, but lacked the action he was after. The solid metal bead was added to the rear screweye to change the balance and gave it great walk-the-dog action.
