Mumbles, Thanks for the reply. I can't say I've ever seen a rod with each section marked before either. That must be something new Redington is doing with the RS4. I've got two CPS's and neither are marked as such. That is actually not a bad idea. I once had my broken down 4 wt and 6 wt GLX's get mixed together. The blank marking would have solved that easily. Redington has excellent service and will take good care of you.
