Platinum Switch Rod 8wt 11'0"

Regular price $ 495.00

The 11’ 8 wt Platinum switch can easily be considered a short Spey rod that is light enough to single hand cast, or nymph all day long. This rod is just about as fun as it gets with a two hand rod, possessing the power of most Spey rods and lightness and feel in hand of a single hand rod.

The 11′ 8wt Switch rod is the big brother to our 10’8” 7 also featuring a deep loading, slightly regressed action and a fast recovery. This rod is easy to make friends with and is going to be the one you can call on for all Steelhead/light Salmon duty and crosses over into winter fishing on all medium to larger rivers. This rod like most of our Platinum two-handed rods compliments and rewards a compact and relaxed casting stroke where less is more!
