Redington’s Crosswater series of rods is one of the best deals for a beginner angler, however, it’s an equally solid choice when you need an oddball rod for taking on a trip. Made with a moderate fast action in line weights 4, 5, 6, 8, and 9, the Crosswaters make for easy and consistent casting while providing an option for casting dry flies and nymphs to trout just as well as you can throw a full sinking line at striped bass. Redington’s Crosswater family is made with a clean blue graphite blank that looks at home on the headwaters of a river or on a sandy beach. Don’t let the price of this rod fool you, because it provides an incredible value without forcing you to bump into a higher price point rod.
Graphite - The Crosswater family of rods is made with a graphite blank. This blank has a medium-fast action that combines solid accuracy with an ability to deliver most flies in your box. Its action also provides instant feedback for the beginner angler looking to hone their casting skills. With the 4, 5, and 6 weight options, these blanks will handle all of your dry fly and nymphing needs while also tossing some larger streamers and heavier indicator/multi fly rigs.
Although the Crosswater Fly Rods are an affordable workhorse, they do have a sharp look to them with a nice blue color to the blank.
Anodized Machined Aluminum - Built for all water conditions, Redington’s Crosswater series is equipped with an anodized machined aluminum reel seat. With an uplocking design, your reel will stay nice and snug, while the anodized machined aluminum remains durable and prevents corrosion should you find yourself in the saltwater.
The Crosswater Rods come with a cotton rod sock for fast and easy storage when not in use.
Redington’s Crosswater Fly Rods come with a one year warranty. This warranty covers defects in material or workmanship and a dated proof of purchase is necessary for all warranty claims.
