Redington most certainly are very good products since Sage bought them. The only reel difference is there are fewer rod models compared to pre-Sage. As far as not using them for larger fish like salmon or steelhead simply because some of the reels (not the Breakwater series like you got, which has a disc drag) only have click drags, that is a no-never-mind. Folks have caught many large salmon and steelhead on Hardy, click drag reels for over 100 years.
Your RedFly and Breakwater reel combo is one of the several excellent values anglers can avail themselves of now-a-days. In other words, use your RedFly and Breakwater reel with confidence and enjoy.
