The Chromer is Redington’s fast action Switch and Spey rod offering with tons of performance and power. Redington included unique Polymer Pinch Grip systems in the Chromer two-handed rods to make managing running line easier in cold temperatures. Add a matte finish blank for flash reduction, a full anodized aluminum reel seat, and premium grade cork handles, it’s easy to see why the Chromer is one of the most popular Spey series’ on the market. And, at just under $400, this rod has got to be the best in its price range.
Smooth Fast Action Design - The Chromer Spey and Switch rods were designed to be powerful and efficient. A fast rod action contributes to the rod’s reserve power and the blank’s smooth design also makes effortless long-distance casts. The rod is also incredibly lightweight and maintains pinpoint accuracy through improved rod tip recovery and superb line control.
Lightweight Stripping Guides w/Zirconia Inserts - Lightweight stripping guides allow Spey lines to shoot through the Chromer effortlessly. These guides accommodate any fly line. The Spey rods have zirconia inserts to minimize line freezing and increase strength and durability.
Hard Chrome Snake Guides - Regular snake guides decrease the overall rod weight of the Chromer to keep the rod as lightweight as possible without sacrificing performance. Snake guides minimize line friction and maximize rod performance.
Anodized Aluminum - The anodized aluminum reel seat on the Chromer Spey rods is corrosion-resistant and lightweight. The Chromer Spey also comes with a composite cork handle with soft-touch Polymer Pinch Grip sections for better running line control. A double downlocking component on the heavier Spey models anchors larger Spey reels for maintenance-free performance.
Cordura Rod Tube - The Chromer 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 Chromer Spey safe during travel and transportation.
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.
