All this talk about Redington CT rods has me thinking. I own an 8'6" 5wt CT and a 9' 5wt Winston B3x. They are different rods with different personalities but am I wasting my money on the B3x? I consider myself the "average" inland NW fisher throwing nymph rigs, dry droppers and the occasional streamer for trout on "average" sized rivers. The CT is slower than the B3x but it still does everything the B3x can. Although I do consider the B3x a better streamer rod. I was drawn to the B3x because of the "feel" & flex and the 2.625 oz weight, but my CT weighs 2.7 oz; which was important to me because I fractured both wrists 2 years ago. And the CT has a great taper, too. Consider the math here. CT= $80 vs B3x= $795. That's a $715 difference. WTF. Don't get me wrong, I really like my Winston. But damn! Am I alone thinking this?
