Redington’s Butter Stick has been around for a while. The Butter Stick II is new and improved and keeps the traditional feel of fiberglass without sacrificing the benefits of contemporary innovation. Redington’s T-Glass construction and the rod’s retro color scheme make the Butter Stick as much a work of art as it is a fishing tool. If you’re looking for your next small stream fiberglass rod the Butter Stick is one of the best in its price range.
T-Glass Construction and Heritage Taper - The Butter Stick is Redington’s slow action glass rod offering, perfect for small streams and delicate dry fly presentations. The T-Glass construction gives the blank of the Butter Stick superb short-range accuracy and a dynamic full flex rod profile. The rod’s Heritage Taper and retro build shape a rod that’s stylish and purposefully designed.
Titanium Oxide Stripping Guides - Titanium oxide stripping guides allow fly line to shoot through the Butter Stick effortlessly and efficiently. These guides are small to accommodate freshwater specific fly lines and durable to stand up to weathering and wear.
Chrome Snake Guides - Chrome snake guides decrease the overall rod weight of the Butter Stick to keep the rod as lightweight as possible without sacrificing performance. Snake guides are popular in the industry because of their functionality and durability.
All-Cork Handle w/Slide Rings - The smaller rod models of the Butter Stick have a traditional full cork reel seat with slide rings to anchor small freshwater fly reels. The cork reel seat pays homage to glass rods of old and helps keep overall rod weight low.
Anodized Aluminum Reel Seat & Fighting Butt - The larger models of the Butter Stick have anodized aluminum reel seats for increased durability and corrosion resistance. These rods are saltwater safe and include a fighting butt for increased fish fighting power.
Cordura Rod Tube - The Butter Stick comes in a fully protected Cordura rod tube with dividers for easy storage. Cordura is a phenomenal mid-priced alternative to aluminum and keeps the Butter Stick safe during transportation and travel.
The Redington Lifetime Warranty - As of July 2019, every new Redington rod purchased through an authorized dealer, excluding the Crosswater Series and Minnow and Topo Combos, is covered by a lifetime original owner warranty. The warranty is limited to replacement of the rod only and does not cover direct, indirect, consequential, incidental or any other type of damage resulting from the use of the product.
