I just got my new rod in the mail today. I called Todd(the florum fly shop) last friday and ordered a Redington Predator 7'10" 8wt and it was on my porch when I got home from Little Rock at 2pm today. Great service, THANKS Todd. I strung it up and took it out in the yard to cast it, MAN it will shoot line like nothing, smooth handling VERY nice rod. When I get it on the lake in the next few days I will post and let ya'all know what happens.

Don't you love finding new fishing gear waiting for you on the porch? At 7'10" it must be great for getting around in tight places. Good luck with it.

I like the Redington rods. I have a 9'0" 8 wt. CPS that I would not part with. I use it mostly for smaller Stripers off the coast of Maine in the summer. It's a nice rod. Nice enough, in fact that when I get into a situation where Im not sure what the size of the Stripers/Blues will be, I usually opt for the CPS and let my 9'0" Sage Xi-2 9 wt. sit there in the forward cabin. I've also used it for Bonefish in the Mexican Yucatan and it's a great rod for letting you feel the fish when you've got a lot of line out (of course with a Bonefish, there's never much of a problem with feel, since the line is usually going out off your spool at an amazing rate )

Since Sage bought out Redington, they've "upgraded" the CPS to what is now the CPX; supposedly a better, more responsive blank. I havent' cast the CPX yet, but it won't be long because I'm in the market for another 9'0" 8 wt. and 9 wt. to keep up in Maine so that I won't have to carry the rods with me on the trips back and forth.

Bear, I'm glad you like your 7'10" predator. Have fun fishing it!
