    I LOVE my classic trout rods.  I have a 5w and a 3w.  I am in love with my little 3w setup (7'6") because it just balances perfectly.  I put a 3-Tand TF40 on it and it's perfect.  My 5w has a 3-tand TF50 and is a bit tip heavy(9').  I started on a Redington Path combo but quickly got into the classic trout setups.  I find the slower casting tempo much easier for a beginner like me.  Oh, and don't be afraid to start hauling …  I started double hauling very soon after I got my first classic trout rod.  It's just practice and the thing about the classic trout rods is you feel everything, good casts, bad casts…so I think it really helps accelerate the learning curve.

    "you can still still cast 70-80' with a soft action rod"…..yeah, IF you can double haul like that…..show off!  Typical great Reds Fly vid…..I'm a 2nd year novice in PA and have fished both seasons with a POS rod. I'm ready to upgrade but can't justify a $795 rod. Looks like the next step will be this Redington. I was also thinking about a fast rod but you've put me in my place: I'm going MF. Thanks.

    How does the Redington CT roll cast? I am no pro caster but I would consider myself better than intermediate. I have been considering the 2wt CT for small back country streams, think I will be happy with the purchase or will I find myself wishing I went with a more high end rod despite not needing long casting distance?
