“I recently got to fish Redington’s new Predator 8-weight for the first time . I lined it with a Rio OB Custom Cut T-14 (28-feet). Wow, was I impressed! It cast that line and a big SMM like the two were a match made in Heaven. That’s a fabulous stick for sinking lines; and I’m sure it will handle the others as well. It’s found a permanent place in my rod quiver.”  Dan Blanton

“I fished the 9′ 8 and 9 all fall for little tunnies. I also fished the shorter 8’3″ 10 wt. Also took them to Baja this fall. Plenty powerful rods. I think the 9′ 9 wt might fish better over lined by one. Bottom line I was impressed and are very high on these sticks– waiting on spring to give them more action…” Captain Brian Horsley

“I am fishing the 7, 8 and 9 here in So Cal saltwater and they have been outstanding. The Predator Gives my clients a second choice when going out to buy. Many can not make the jump to XI3’s.”


“These rods perform amazing regardless of the price point. I also like to up line on the floating, but use the basic numbers for weighted lines (250gr for 7, 325gr for 8 and 350gr for 9wt).”

“So I now have both sets on the boat.” Captain Bill Matthews
