Featuring advanced Red.Core2 technology and ExoCarbon overlays, the Redington 4-Piece Link Fly Rod rolls out tight, accurate casts that anglers of every ability level will appreciate, along with enhanced line load feel. The carbon fiber wraps greatly improve hoop strength while the ExoCarbon overlays increase line carrying ability and provide a sleek one-of-a-kind look. Whether you take hold of a three-weight trout rod or a meaty nine-weight salmon slayer, the Link will supply the performance you need to get the job done.
Purchased the 9' 8wt and it is a great rod for the current sale price. I don't feel it is worth the full retail price ($379), but it is certainly an upgrade from my older Redington RS4, as it has a slightly faster action with more zing given the same energy input. Finish is very nice and the reinforced ferrules and section above the cork are confidence-inspiring when fighting big coho salmon. This is my new go-to rod for salmon.
