    First, let me say that as of today I have not fished with this rod. I received the rod about 2-3 ago, but "bad water" and warm temperatures have slowed down fishing in general. However, let me give you my first impressions after unpacking, examining, and testing the flex of the rod. I think STP has offered outstanding value for this Redington rod, which figures largely in the 5 Star Rating. You could pay much, much more for one of the "big boy" rod builders without seeing better features or better flex. The rod has very good fit and finish and the rod feels like it was made to fight large trout.

    Finally, I did not want to pay a premium rod price, I wanted the best rod for the most reasonable price. I think I found it!

    I have been looking for a longer nymphing rod for a long time and this is it! The flex is a little soft but well within what I will use it for on the river. It casts like a dream and the length makes is easy to mend. I am impressed with the cork on the handle as many companies are going cheapo these days. The cork is solid and well formed. I would recommend this rod if you are looking for good mender or throwing nymphs on bigger water.

    I purchased this rod for high-stick nymphing and lake fishing from a kayak. Since we are still iced over, I haven't done the lake thing yet, but have fished on the river with it several times. It is truly a heavy duty rod. It seems like maybe its closer to a 6 weight than a five, as it struggles on short casts, but nevertheless, has lots of power to fight fish in heavy current.

    A really great rod for nymphing and high sticking. The extra length really helps in mending your line when you are indicator fishing. This is my first CPX but several people I have talked to think this could be the best rod that Redington has made. I was very impressed with the rod's finish and this is an excellent deal.

    Overall, I would say this rod fills a niche that is often overlooked. It is good for fishing from a float tube or from a river or lake where you have a sloped bank at your back. The extra foot allows you to get a better backcast without hitting the water/ground and then you can bang out long casts as necessary.

    I've paired mine with a 7wt line and can punch out 75 foot casts fairly easily. For deep indicator nymphing on lakes or using heavy split shot on rivers, it allows you to throw your setup much easier than a standard lightweight 5-weight.

    That said, this rod is heavy and does not feel like an elegant tool. It feels like a club, but sometimes it's good to have a club in your bag. It really is closer to a 6 weight rather than a 5.
