Re: Opinions on 6 wt rods?
At the moment Sierra Trading Post has the Redington CPX 10' 5wt with fighting butt for only $110... without any extra daily deal flyer markdown. I have a CPX 9'6" 8wt... they're very fast rods, and the ERN on my 8wt measures closer to a 10wt. I'd imagine that the 5wt would come in at at least 6-6.5wt in reality. And for that price you could probably resell it for at least what you paid if it doesn't work out. I'm tempted to buy one myself, and probably would if I hadn't just bought a spey rod. Just a thought.
