Redington DFR 590-3 Rod/Ari t Hart Reel Combination
Redington DFR 590-3 Rod/Ari t Hart Reel Combination. Item is in used near excellent condition. Available is a unique and rare 5wt rod and reel combination manufactured by the original Dave Redington Rod Company. Redington teamed with worldwide renowned industrial designer Ari t Hart to create this exclusive reel design. Harts reels are displayed in the New York Museum of Modern Art and are unique in design and superb in material manufacturing. The reels were manufactured in Holland at Harts studios and then matched with Redingtons DFR (damn fine rod) series rods. Rods are unique unto themselves in that their materials development was scientifically created within the aero space industry and then. Sent to Composite Development in New Zealand where the graphite helically wound blanks were manufactured.
Sent back to Florida for final finishing. There was a great deal of time invested in each rod and its amazing that Redington was able to offer these unique rods at the reasonable price point they did.
Offered in this package is the Redington DFR rod with the beautiful Ari t Hart reel seat that perfectly accompanies the Ari t Hart RH1. The original Redington rod tube and cloth wrap are included. The tube has some scrapes and scratches as well as a dent. Near the top opening and visible in the photo where the tube is standing upright along the fence. The original Ari t Hart International B V green neoprene reel pouch protector is also included.The reel has some very minor scratches on the rim, but nothing cosmetically off putting to the eye. The rods cork handle is used, but not filthy or grimy looking as I routinely cleaned the rod after each outing. Is a beautiful emerald green that dances in the sunlight. There are a couple of rubs on the rod that are not noticeable and no scrapes or scratches. On the bottom of the reel seat is a black plastic end butt protector which has scratches on it since the rod was being stood up. On end in many cases. Ferrules and guides are all straight and as original. I consider this rod to cast as medium/fast with plenty of power to punch out terrestrials or to lay down close in soft presentations. This rod gladly sizes up to a 6wt. Extra spool not included in this package.
There has never been a river or lodge that I was present at with this outfit that I didnt receive constant questions and comments about. I even had a Japanese fellow who could barely speak English beg me to sell it to him as we stood waist deep in the middle of the Snake river!
