Switch rods bridge the gap between long powerful single handed rods and full
on two handed rods and as such, they are a natural progression for many anglers
coming from a singlehanded back ground into the world of proper two handed rods.
They can be used, with the appropriate line, either single or double handed,
for both Spey and overhead casts.
These rods excel in situations where longer two handed salmon rods are
simply too big and where long single handed rods are tiresome to use, especially
when you need a bit of distance, or in windy conditions, they are also much
easier to work with on small waters where big flies and heavy sink tips are
Switch 11 foot 7 weight
Better at the small water work to easily aerialise hort head switch or spey
lines when they is too much vegetation behind you to overhead cast. Easier to

fast and casts tight loops
Switch 11 foot 8 weight
Use a heavy switch line at 300 rams to fully load this powerful rod. For
people you like using a switch rod with short heads on bigger faster rods. fast
