I have been using this Redington Vice rod this summer and have loved it. Great value, easy to use and most importantly, I have caught a lot of fish on Colorado rivers with this rod.
I have fished both my 9ft 7wt and 9ft 9wt Vice rods in salt and fresh and they both performed better than expected. Both have landed some bruiser fish in the salt, some awesome browns and some tank pike. They load great, and cast the whole fly line with a double haul. Will for sure be getting more rods in the Vice range!
I use the 6WT version for throwing heavier streamer flies and fishing larger water with the heaviest nymph rigs where distance and power is needed. This rod does a great job in those conditions. This is a great all-rounder rod at a low price point for somewhere like the North Platte.
This is overall a great rod at the 200$ price range. Really nice fast action, but its obviously not quite your Sage X. Im running a 7wt in this for streamers and love it, casts a sink tip well. I also have a 3wt, which fishes more similar to a 4 and is great for alot of smaller river uses.
I got to try this rod out in a 7 weight while fishing with a buddy in Wyoming. It was his go to meat chucker. It will also soon be mine after spending about a week using it. Good rod for the price I plan on using it as a warm water 8 weight.
