Float rod question Raven RV9 vs RPX

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, hoping some of you have experience with the RPX and can shed some light for me...

Has anyone fished with the RPX? Anyone fish both RV9 and RPX?

I recently sent an Rv9 in for warranty and Raven needs to send a new rod so I now have the option to pay the difference and upgrade to the RPX. The Rv9 was a pretty good off the shelf rod IMO but looking for something better. Wondering if the RPX is worth it and that much lighter and more powerful.

Or maybe I get the new Rv9 back, sell it and go for the custom I always wanted.

Decisions!!!

Get the RV9 back and get something custom done.   So many great blanks out there these days, also if you can stumble onto one of the greats (IMX, IM6, Sage, etc) you'll have it in your collection forever.

I own a RV9 and it works well for west and east tribs.  My buddy has both and only uses his RPX for bigger water like the niagara.  He says its too strong for fishing creeks, two steps back and fish are already on the bank.

Also I didn't know upgrading was a option.
