Re: Best starter rod outfit
I will recommend Redington. You have a few different price points to choose from and still be under $300.00.
Classic trout outfit $289.00 great reviews on this medium/moderate action rod and I believe you get a drift reel which is stellar/eye stealer.
Redington voyant outfit $299.95
Redington pursuit outfit $179.00
A few years ago I purchased an RS4 outfit 5wt for a boat rod and backup outfit and fell in love with how smooth and transitional the rod was and cast. The Rise reel is also a very good reel with a solid and sensitive drag system. I had a good experience with their warranty department as well. I had slipped on a rock midstream falling and landed on my reel which resulted in shearing off the machined bolts that hold the reel foot to the reel. Sent it in with explanation of what happened and received a brand new reel no questions asked! Also.. I heard Sage bought Redingon they must be doing something right!
