Nothing wrong with going with the Redington but I would offer an alternative that might serve you better and longer for about the same cost. Take a look at Cabela's Stowaway 7 and Stowaway 5. Of the two, I prefer the 7 but that's because it has a very good action and, more importantly, breaks down into a little 16-inch package -- carry it anywhere. However, nothing wrong with the 5 except the package isn't as small.
If you take to the sport and buy other rods, I doubt you will ever let this one go. It's versatility is hard to match except for lots more money. I have reviewed two in the past and will soon do another... If you've never delt with Cabela's, have no fear -- they back what the sell as well, if not better, than many manufacturers. http://www.cabela.com
If you don't like it, send it back...
