Snyder Glas Northcoaster info please

 Hi everybody .. hope your all staying safe and well :-)

Can anybody provide info on a 13'6 Snyder Glas (not Wilson) Northcoaster rod (Alvey low mount single piece)  ... the only info I can find is that it was sold by Wilson .. it's a 7 wrap but it states it's max casting is only 80gms ???? this seems very light to me .. I have Snyder 7144 and 7177 rods and casting weights are over 100gms  .. so why is the Northcoaster such a light rod for the length ?

 I have actually found an old Wilson advert for them with a 45gm max with a 5-7kg line class!!! For a good length rod why are they such a lightweight? The advert is contradictory as it says 45gm max but then a size 4-8 sinker .. so max 79gms
