Shimano Cumulus Rods - The Ultimate in Lightweight

My favorite rod is the Shimano Cumara; its light, strong, sensitive and just plain awesome.  Well now I have my sights set on another Shimano rod, the new Cumulus. Tacklewarehouse.com calls it "Possibly the lightest and most sensitive rods Shimano has ever produced, every element of the Cumulus Casting Rod Series was designed with low weight in mind."  The lightest of these rods weighs just 2.7 ounces!  That's barely heavier than a couple flippin' weights.  I'm really interested in trying one of these rods out.  Tackle Tour has more details which can be found here.  I really don't know how you can improve on the Cumara, but for fishing rods, lighter is better.
