Default Redington CPX

Picked up a Redington CPX last week. 9'0" 4-pc, 3 wt. The price on TheClymb was $129.95, hard to turn down, I thought.

Yesterday I measured 12 rods with the 'common cents' system. All were pretty close to the marked weights - except two - the CPX and a St Croix 6' 2wt. I remeasured these two a total of three times each with the same results.

The St Croix measured consistently at 1.1. I can live with that. I've fished it quite a bit and like it.

The CPX comes out to 4.85-4.90. Seem much higher than I expected. I haven't fished it yet. The problem is I have several other 5 wt rods and would like a real 3 wt.

Has anyone else measured or used this rod? If so, how did it turn out?

New Info:

Sent an email to Redington's tech group. Got an answer back in under 5 minutes(!).

This was the answer: "They are true fast action rods and typically like a size heavier line. Depending on your preference and casting style, they can be right on or you may need to go up a full size."
