Great value for an even greater rod

I now own two Redington 9' Links. A 6-wt for streamers and a 3-wt for dries and small wets. Although primarily a trout fisher, the 3-wt is a blast for summer panfishing. The Link is very well-made and for what it matters quite attractive. Tip flex/fast action, which is not what I prefer, but these rod get my fly to where I need it. Once I adjust to the flex/action, I can plant a pin-point cast across a stream or in front of a rising fish. More control and distance than my preferred full flex/slow action rods. I over-lined each of the rods, using a 7-wt sink tip line on the streamer rod, and a 4-wt WF floating line on the 3-wt. I tend to fish smaller waters so rarely cast beyond 40'. The over-lining loads the rod earlier, allowing accurate short casts. Yet when I need a longer cast, the rods respond well. If one is looking to purchase a well-made, high quality rod, and choose function over form (IE performance over a vanity brand name), please consider the Redington Link while they are still available.
