Redington Crosswater 2 Series Fly Rod
 
Anyone used this rod? I'm looking at the 6wt, but I am afraid it might be too slow. I am looking for something that will atleast be the same action as my TFO signature.

If you like the TFO Signature Series why not stay with it? If you are curious about other 6 wts like the TFO try out the Scierra IC3. It similar to a TFO, and is close to that price range. If you have run into a deal on the Crosswater. Find out if you can test it out. That will be the best way to see if the rod will do what YOU want it to.

Hi, I have fished the Crosswater rods and am a Redington dealer. The '07 update was nicely done and these rods are stiffer than you might think, I would consider them moderate fast action. I was surprised how fast they were for an entry level rod. For $59.00, they are a heck of a buy and better quality than anything else I have seen in this price range. Hope this helps!

I kind of wanted to try something new.

I own the 8'6" 5wt crosswater. Its awesome. I can cast 5wt line 40-50feet with accuracy. Its worth it, as Cabela's sells it for 60$.

Good advice fishplease as Cabela's is a sponser of this site. We should try to support the sponsers of this fine site like cabela's, The Full Creel, etc. It almost seems as if this thread was a setup for reelflyrod to get some air time.

I swear to you it isn't. I have been cruising this site for some time, I just haven't posted.

And thanks for that fishplease, you just sold me on the rod.

Cool, I'm glad you found a rod.

Score! Another Crosswater sale.:)
I'm sure you will be glad with the light weight of it.
What reel/line will you use with it?

Ha, that's going to be negated by Martin Mtn Brook that I will probably be putting on it(thing is heavy). And I will be probably trying out the Cortland 444 SL that I got for 20 dollars on sale. I have been using it on my 4 weight, and it's alright, but if it's not good enough on my 6wt, I will probably be changing to Headstart(love that stuff).
