Default Re: Redington - Vapen Red Fly Rod Review

I found the Vapen to be a bit too much on the fast side for my blood but that grip is the bomb. Think cork but with more grip or a slight tacky feel but also compliant. The grippiness and more forgiving durometer rating really set it apart from any other grip I've used and my hand really seemed to like it. The grip also seems to have the warmth of cork... that is something that treated and wooden grips lack and that I just have to have on my rods.
