The Vapen Red Series is a line of fly fishing rods featuring an entirely new style of non-slip grip that seeks to improve performance over the cork variety. Redington, among the industry leaders in fly fishing gear, made a daring move when they decided to replace the traditional cork handle with a completely new polymer grip. Working with Winn Grips, the leader of golf club grips, Redington engineered their PowerGrip for the Vapen Red Rods which increases security, reduces fatigue and amplifies power. In addition to the new grips, Redington's Vapen fly rods are dollar for dollar some of the most sound fly rods on the market today. Constructed using Redington's X-Wrap graphite, the Vapen rods are strong, stable and offer maximum vibration dampening. Components are high quality throughout including a carbon fiber reel seat insert and custom anodized reel seat highlights. Small details abound with the Vapen Series including ingenious hidden hook keepers, alignment dots for setup and a quality detailing. We offer two models of the Redington Vapen Red Series: 590-4V and 790-4V. Rods come with high quality black suede bag and are backed by Redington's lifetime warranty.
