    Default Re: Redington CT 6wt 9ft

    I have the 5wt and my buddy bought the 6wt. Its a sloooow rod compaired to all the Sage rods that I have so it took some changes in my normal casting storke but they cast well. i was hitting 45' with the 6wt no problems at all.

    I agree. I found it performed the double haul nicely and accurately.

    Yes a good haul on the line it really wakes the road up. Thee is quiet a bit of difference even between the 5wt and 6wt when casting. I can imagine the 3wt would feel very close to a bamboo action, my 5 almost does.

    Sorry for the late reply.
    www.basspro.com they have it on sale for $99.89 and up until yesterday they had the rod swapping program. I was planning to swap my old and ugly trout casting rod worth only for $15 for the CT.

    After toying with it, I ended up not getting it. It is to slow for me and probably I am not a good caster yet.
    I don't have much false casting room where I fish, so I need a bit faster rod for the streamers I am planning to you.

    Nice and beautiful rod though.
