Default Redington Rise Reel

Has anyone used this reel? I was bored while waiting for some configurations to load onto a new router and I watch Steepandcheap.com all the time and saw this reel up for sale for 75 bucks. Grabbed the Burnt Orange 5/6 for 80 bucks shipped.

It seems to have pretty good reviews and for 80 bucks, which seems like a good price, I see it is on sale for 112 on some sites, so figured 80 was even better haha plus I was in a need to buy something mood.

Thats a pretty good deal. Redington makes a nice product. I had a Drift on a 2wt and it did just what it was supposed to. I really like the burnt orange color.

Yeah to be honest I just liked the color hahaha and figured for 80 bucks it was worth a shot. I have never used Redington so got to try it out I guess.

To be honest I was ticked that I couldnt get the Drift 2/3 in burnt orange. It really is a well built reel though and you got a good price. Enjoy.

The Rise is a very good reel with a sensitive drag and a nice outgoing click that isnt bothersome. I have the 7/8 on my bass outfit and the 5/6 on one of my trout outfits and they have been very good setups. At that price you got a great reel deal!

Awesome thanks for chiming in. Definitely glad I grabbed it. Kind of wish they would have had a 3wt though and then I could combine it with a lighter setup, but nonetheless glad I bought it. May even buy a Redington rod to go with it.

Looks like they came out with the rise 2 probably why its on sale. Where can everyone else pick up this deal? I'm in the market for a new 6wt reel!

FYI Cabelas has the spare spools on sale for $50

site i watch is called steepandcheap.com basically backcountry.com only the deals last for a certain amount of time and usually limited number of the product. Great site to watch if you are outdoors type of person.

Yeah I knew it was the first version of the reel, but the second gen seems to be more updates for the heavier weight reels than the lighter ones. Though the arbor size is supposedly bigger, but of course I am not sure on that and of course it comes in different colors, which I do like the new blue color.


Check backcountry.com though see what they are pricing it as, I am sure it is discounted, but I have yet to see it again for 80 bucks shipped.

I picked up a 5/6 Rise for my RPL 586, and it seems like a good match...weight wise.

I wanted a mid sized arbor, instead of a large. It tends not to keep the line coiled up as I strip line, like small arbors do.

I haven't used the drag, as trout don't tend to put one in a position to use it.

Its a quiet light weight smooth reel. I really wasn't looking for a reel with drag, but I got it on sale for about 75.00...great price for a machined reel.
