The Predator Rod is Redington's ultimate choice for big flies, heavy lines, and aggressive-fighting fish. Its intuitive, fast action performs well in freshwater and saltwater, with components designed to stand up to the latter. The anodized, machined aluminum reel seat and anodized snake guides increase durability no matter what kind of water you’re in. The balance of the rod gives it a lightweight feel in your hand, while maintaining responsiveness. Redington showed their attention to detail by including alignment dots for easy setup and a Cordura rod tube with built in dividers to keep your rod safe.

Excellent Big Fish Rod
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Great rod for casting big flies and heavy sinking lines. I fished this rod for tarpon and false albacore recently and found my guide raving about it. Great casting action with a slightly softer tip than the broomstick like traditional saltwater rods at 10 and 12 weights.
Although described as a fast-action rod, the Predator takes a slightly slower casting cadence but it offers a much better fish fighting experience similar to the Orvis Helios 2 rods. I found this was a much easier rod to cast when chasing fish all day and needing to make potentially hundreds of casts.
At half to a third of the price of other high end saltwater rods, Redington has a hit on their hands with a great big game rod that is just as good in performance and looks as the Sage, T&T, and Orvis rods in the same line weight.
