St Croix Rio
I really don't have the money for this.....maybe in early summer I will. The local fishing shop has some 9 foot 5 wt four piece St Croix Rio rods for 125 dollars. Is this a good buy? The next model up from the Rio sells for 200 dollars (almost twice but with rod case).
When compared to a Fenwick HMX of the same length at 200 dollars (however 2 piece), the HMX is stiffer.
I can buy a Reddington via the internet for about 140 dollars.
Which would be the best buy?
