Hey everyone, just joined the forum and have already made my first mistake with the user name
I'm hoping for some help deciding between redington's RS4 and Red Fly 2 rods. Also deciding which weight to go with.
I've read that both models are fast but realise the red fly wont be quite as high in the modulus of the graphite (I'm youngish so not too concerned about any difference in weight of the rods)
I plan on using the rod for a range of situations, and till this point have been using a flimsy old fibregless (around a 6 wt) with in my opinion a very slow action (and vibrates like crazy too).
I plan on using the rod lake fishing for browns, and in the salt for flathead and bream (I'm in Aust.) I also will target the bass in streams and dams.
Every now and then I might fish off the rocks in the salt for any kahwai (Aust. salmon)/bonito/tailor that might swing by.
Most of the flies I'll use will be small to medium in size (16-2 range I guess - nothing with /0 after it)
-I'd like to be able to cast into the wind (Will the 6wt be up to it)
-I want to feel the fish fight (will the 7wt dampen any of my fun?
-Is there a difference between the two models in how they'll stand up to the salt (looks like they have the same guides on them)
Big post I know but any advice would be greatly welcomed.
