Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anonymous from Taos, NM on Thursday, September 11, 2014I purchased the rod with the express purpose of learning the "European Nymphing" technique and applying that technique to my fishing here in Northern New Mexico. However, let me say that I have not yet been able to get this rod to the water, so my comments must be qualified by that circumstance. So let me say that the rod appears to represent excellent manufacturing quality, mid-flex performance, looks good, and feels great. I am told by my "fly shop" guru(s) that this rod will be perfect for the fall when the Browns move up our big water river into tight quarters during spawning.
Finally, you can fly fish with a cain pole, but my judgement of fly rods considers the following criteria: performance, balance, visual qualities, and price. This rod delivers a lot of value for the price.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anonymous from Taos, NM on Wednesday, August 20, 2014First, 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!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by ghilly18 from The Great Central Valley, California on Saturday, May 31, 2014I 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.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Old Sheepdog from Colorado on Tuesday, April 8, 2014I 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.
Reviewed by SB from California on Sunday, March 2, 2014A 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.
