Re: Is the Redington Pursuit 5wt really a 5wt?
The review that everyone is dying to read>
I bought the Redington Pursuit 5wt for my trip and have cast it a few times.
First impression is WOW! this is a cheap rod. Horrible construction and a grip made of saw dust. What a disappointment.
But to answer my original question: I actually cast very nice with WF5WT floating Cabela's line. I can not complain about the casting accuracy or ability. However it is very heavy and has a heavy swing weight.
Would I buy one again. NO. Is it fine for a few trips a year. Not really, but it will have to do.
