I have so-so opinions with Redington. I must admit they make great products for the money but have had problems keeping up with the demand and from my experience, when special ordering from Redington they arent nearly as fast as say Lamson, Ross, Simms, Sage etc. etc.
One of Redingtons best products is there wading boots which run right around $60. They have heavy duty felt soles, a ton of support and seem to be very well built.
And I know many people have had great experience with their reels but I have seen some where over time the drag becomes really sticky and that drag system is a compete rat trap.
