Default Re: Rio Gold or Grand for Redington CPX 4wt

If you're thinking about 2013 Rio line, I would recommend Gold. If you want and can find 2012 model line, go with Grand. From what I understand, Gold is now .5 line weight up, which is where Grand was before the full line up in the 2013 release. Personally, I like the taper of Gold better and I'd probably recommend that.

You'll get a varying degree of preferences on full, 1/2 or close to standard line weight. I fish Z Axis and XP with .5 and they do just fine for me. I'm not the most accomplished caster, but I'm not horrible either, even if Chiflyfisher tells you otherwise.

SA GPX would be another good option. The more Rio changes these line weights, the more appealing SA Lines become. I've long been fishing Rio lines too.
