Lets walk through a brief example: Pick up the exact two casting rods from a local retailer place the same reel on each of the two rods and then place them into their respective "optimum" parabolic shapes by pulling the tips using the line. Now note where the fishing line touches the blank and note the tip twist (or torque). If they were the same the line will touch at the same points and the twist (or hopefully lack of twist) would be equivalent as well. Now cast. Distance and accuracy should be equivalent however in every case this will never happen with an "off-the-shelf" fishing rod because they are manufactured using guide placements in the exact same spot of every blank being constructed (i.e. they are not made of homogenous or equivalent materials and will never be the same). Currently I know of no company that mass-produces and also takes the time to individually tune every guide under both a static and dynamic load prior to wrapping guides... both of which are required to achieve optimum guide placement and ultimately rod performance (not to mention a few critical requirements that are never performed before guide placement... such as splining balancing of the handle system tuning guide systems etc.). Dont get me wrong there are companies that take the time to complete a step or two of the overall process but there are none that perform all of the required steps. A professional custom builder strives to ensure that component integration is accomplished to elicit the very best performance from each fishing rod. If a customer takes the time to identify and choose those premium components that compliment their angling style technique and specifications... then you can rest assured that the custom builder works to ensure their finished sport-fishing equipment performs the way they expected it to... and then some.
The grain is the only common weight in both these systems and thus there are a different number of grains to the pound depending on which weight system you are addressing. Confusing isnt it? There are 7000 grains to the pound avoirdupois which is divided into 16 ounces of 437 grains each. There are 5760 grains to the troy pound which is divided into 12 ounces and then into 20 pennyweights of 24 grains each. Both the avoirdupois and the troy system were in use in different parts of the world at the same time with different actual weights for the pound and ounce. This is the reason why the grain was chosen to weigh fishing lines - it didnt matter which weight system you normally used - the grain weight was the same. Just to complete the confusion and for those of a metric disposition 1 grain = 0.0648 grams. So it was unimportant where in the world you were and what the local weight system was old fly lines were described by their grain weight which measured the weight of the first 30ft (9.14m) of the line. Each line was individually weighed and could have a grain weight that was unique to it and might be only slightly different from another line. This idea of weighing fly lines in grains overcame the problem faced by the British colonials who might be in India or South Africa or in many other outposts and needed to order their fly line from the home country as no lines were made in the country they were currently residing in. They could ensure that they were ordering what they needed without reference to their current countrys weight measurement system.
