Pursuit Fly Rod and Reel Series
Redington is introducing the Pursuit Series of fly rods and reels with both the beginner and budget-conscious fly angler in mind. Pursuit rods feature an anodized reel seat for both fresh and saltwater applications. The lighter rod weights have a half wells grip, while the heavier rod weights step up to a full wells. All Pursuit rods feature alignment dots on the ferrules. They are available in either 2-piece or 4-piece models.
The Pursuit reel has a light-weight design and large arbor for quicker retrieves, and the durable aluminum frame construction and easy-to-change spool make these reels very user-friendly. The reels easily convert to right- or left-hand retrieve and feature a disc drag system. All reels are charcoal color and come in either 4/5/6 or 7/8/9-weight models.
Each Pursuit fly rod and reel outfit also comes with an appropriately sized RIO Mainstream fly line.
Pricing for the Pursuit outfit is at $159.95 for the 2-piece outfit, or $179.95 for the 4-piece outfit. Both the Pursuit Rod and Reel can be purchased individually. The MSRP on the reel is $59.95. The MSRP for the 2-piece rod is $99.95, while the MSRP for the 4-piece Pursuit rod is $119.95.
Crosswater Youth Outfit
“Redington is excited to introduce new products that can help new anglers get into the sport of fly fishing, and the Crosswater Youth Outfit is a great place for young anglers to start,” comments Jennifer Gish, Marketing Manager for Redington. “With our new aesthetics and efforts in design and performance, we are poised to help grow this sport, especially for the youth market.”
With the success of the Minnow Outfit in 2010, Redington’s latest outfit is targeted at the next age group up: teenagers. Designed for a smooth action and durability, the Crosswater rod is an 8-foot 6-inch 4-piece, 5/6-weight graphite rod. A Crosswater reel with backing, 6-weight RIO Mainstream line, and knotless leader come pre-spooled to get anglers on the water faster. An easy-to-carry rod case is also included with this outfit, which comes in at an MSRP of $139.95.
