I've decided to get the gf a Redington ct. I'm thinking 3 or 4 weight. Probably 8 foot.

I'd like to find a complete rod reel combo.

If anyone has one that's not getting used please let me know.

5 weight, man. It's already a moderate action rod, and the extra power of the 5 will help in windy conditions or for slinging weighted nymphs. The 5 weight will be much more versatile for her.

I have the 3,5,and 6 in the CT. They are the best value of any rod in its class and then some. Kilgore's deal for a 6 wt. above is VERY good. If you can use a 6, there's your deal.

Of the three I have, the 5 wt. is my favorite. It's a LOT lighter than the 6 in feel and action. Perfect all around light rod. If you can find a Redington Drift reel it's a perfect match for it. I guess Redington dropped that reel, not sure why or what the replacement is. A Medalist would work great too. I use both on mine.
