In its new Chromer series, Redington brings five new spey models and three new switch models to the market. Redington also continues its experimentation with non-traditional polymer grips that began with its successful Vapen series of single-handed rods. Instead of a full polymer grip, however, the Chromer rods feature upper and lower "pinch grip" sections that combine with a traditional cork handle. The goal of these pinch grip sections, according to Redington, is to help provide "easy running line management during spey casts and added comfort during long days on the water." - Hatch Magazine Article June 2015.
