Redington - Wayfarer???

Looking for a compact 5 or 7 piece rod that fits my alpine lake hiking trips that I have planned. On the surface the Redington's seem to fit the bill. Does anyone have any expereince with these rods?

Durability? Smooth feel? Customer Service?

Thanks for the help! YC

I'm also interested in feedback on the Wayfarer. Redington's customer service is probably as good as it gets. The price seems awfully good. I wonder about durability.

I thought the 2 pc redington I tried seemed alittle too noodley to me. I ended up with a 4pc St Croix imperial that I like alot. A 5-7 piece rod seems like it wouldn't bend a nicely do to the additional joints although might fit in a pack easier. I strap mine outside the pack on one side and it works for me.

Perhaps you can find a dealer that has both types and try them out side by side and see which you prefer as it is a personal choice. Not sure if they are priced around the same money or not.

The Wayfarer does not come in a 2 piece they are 5 or 7 piece travel rods.The rods are excellent performance rods,in fact they beat out all of the top rods in a head to head casting competition at a world flyfishing show.All models compared were the travel rods.Customer service is excellent with all Redington products.

YC - I'll echo GregD. I've had a St.C Imperial 4-pc 5/6 for about 8-10 years now. I pack it all over the place.

The only thing I've had go wrong was the tip top - it couldn't take being in the back of my cousin's pick-up as we reversed into the brush - D'oh!
My fault so I bought a new tip section - they were fast and kind.

good luck

One of the 'best' reviews given of late mentioned Cabela's and a multi-piece rod which tested very adequately.

I have not used the Redington Rods but hear from many that they are a lot of bang for the buck and great customer service. I would also check out the St. Croix Legend Ultra.
