Default Re: Advice on road selection TFOs

Yeah, 1-2 wts aren't distance rods. I am not a good caster but can throw 50 ft of line with my Redington CT 2wt with a little effort on a calm day. But how many times are there perfect conditions on a Texas lake or creek?

Those light rods are presentation casters for short distances and small fish. As a native Texan, I've wanted to like the TFO's but I always seem to pass them up. If you want a light, moderate action rod that will throw some line but make a smallie feel like a monster, I'd suggest 4 wt like a Redington CT which can be had for ~$80 right now (fishwest.net) and includes the rod tube that a TFO doesn't. I have the 8' 3wt 6pc, what a cool rod?

Big fan of the Redington's and their warranty!
