Reviewed by mmc007jp from TOKYO on Wednesday, December 18, 2013It is the best performance to be able to buy at this price.
Reviewed by FlyFisher1 from Bend, OR on Thursday, December 5, 2013I had used the 8 weight version of this rod and liked it quite well. But, the lighter 7 weight was my preference, so I was pleased to see STP have this model available. These rods are well made, cast like powerfuly and are a pleasure to use. I use them for spey casting; they are a bit much for me to use for very long overhead casting - but I'm scrawny. The reviews for this rod series on the web are strongly positive, and I would certainly agree.
Reviewed by Graybeard from Ohio on Monday, December 2, 2013Great little rod. I got the 5wt and use it for trout but also for Great Lakes steelhead. A true challenge to get a steelie on a 5 wt but FUN! Nice rod and great price. Service was also very good on delivery.
Question & Answer

“What is the fly line grain weight recommended for the 8 weight rod? ”
I will defer to recommendations from George Cooke, the Sage/Redington rep for the Pacific Northwest: for the 8 weight Redington CPX Switch Rod: Rio Scandi 435 grains, Rio Skagit 425 grains, Rio AFS 7/8, Rio Switch 7/8. I personally like a little heavier line to feel the rod load more easily, but I am not an expert spey caster. Similar recommendations would apply to the Airflo lines. The Airflo Rage was suggested to me. I like 450 grains on the 8 wt.; pro's seemed to prefer the 420 grain version. The Rage is a somewhat shorter floating line, so works nicely with these shorter rods. I like the Rage because it fishes well on top with skaters and 2-4-6 size hairwing flies that I like to fish. This is a sweet rod series; very enjoyable to cast all day & plenty of muscle when you hook up.
“Can this rod handle a 20lb. Steelhead?”
The 8 weight model would handle a 20 lb. Steelhead.
