Redington Wayfarer 5pc $139

I'm posting for Smitty the computer challenged at Rodbuilders workshop

I was in his shop Saturday and noticed a great price on a decent rod. He's got Redington Wayfarers sized 4wt-10wt in the 5pc models on sale for $139 usually $195.

He also has some discontinued Cortland lines for 40-60% off.

I just figured I'd post it here since there are surely some lurkers who are thinking about getting into fly fishing and have not posted yet. Not a bad backup rod for the price. You go cast it and be the judge...

Are any of the 10-wt. Wayfarers still available at this juncture?

Yes, and yes.

I believe there is at least one 10wt and one 10' 7wt available last time I spoke with Smitty.

Your best bet is to either call him or let one of us in the same calling area know you are serious and we'll make the call locally on your behalf due to long distance charges, etc.

But hurry!

Action?

How would you describe the action on these rods?

I don't know what they classify the action as, best bet would be to cast one. I have only cast a 7wt once, it seemed similar to the sage DS2. You've got to be the judge when it comes to what action fits your style. One thing is for sure though, these fit my wallet. I've had excellent service from Redington on waders and my 4pc I've turned into a 5pc more than once

They're what I would call a hair below fast action, sort of an upper medium-fast. This is with a 5-pc. 9' 8-wt., BTW, but I would imagine that the rest of the rods in that length would be similar. Saw the write up about the NTi Quartz rods in the FFA yearly gear review. Can't see spending $725 for one rod, but that's just me.

Okay, I'm definitely interested in the 10-wt. Called Simtty and left a message for him; hopefully he's still got one in stock at that price... Also, going to look into a 10-wt. clear intermediate.

I did not know it came in a 10'. That might be good for a yak as far as casting goes, could make landing a chore though.

Anyone using longer than 9'ers for yaks or tubes?

This thread is from over three years ago, so I seriously doubt that any more of these items are still in stock at Smitty's shop.

The wayfarer series recently changed. The new series come in 6 pieces. This gives the low budget flyfisherman amongst us a good chance to get the 5 or 7 piece series for outlet-prices, whithout loosing the excellent lifetime warranty (broke my 9ft 8wt 2 times the past 2 years).
If you are looking for these I would suggest to check out internetsites where theres a lot of things for sale/auction, Ebay for example. I had a very good deal 2,5 years ago where I bought 3 wayfarers and paid just about 400 dollars for them, including import-taxes and shipping to europe.
Good luck!
