    Default Fly Rod Rod Reviewishing for bass or trout Redington Vapen Black

    Redington vapen black 9wt & 6wt, I have to say I was so impressed with this series that I bought a 6. The blank finish is sick looking and it casts so well you can put a fly right on point. Ive had some huge blues and bass on 9wt and it throws a large fly nicely. I was skeptical on the handle material but i love it, its not slippery when wet and it doesn't age like cork. The 6 is perfect for travel and streamer fishing. Heres a list of some other fly rods Im swinging:


    Echo Carbon 4wt
    TFO BVK 5wt
    TFO Axiom 7wt
    Orvis green water 8 wt
    Echo bad *** glass 10wt

    Looks like a great rod. Handle might be the thing as cork tends to weather and fall apart over time.

    Handle material is called power grip its made by a company called winn, similar to what they use on golf clubs, its soft and very comfortable
