Looking for a rod that can perform when teamed with traditional Spey lines but also shine with newer Scandinavian and Skagit set-ups? Powerful enough for large water yet nimble for smaller salmon and steelhead waters, the 8-weight Clearwater Switch rod can readily be under- or over-weighted with a variety of lines, allowing for versatility in a number of situations and conditions. The shorter 11-foot length allows for ease of casting in tight, challenging environments. Clearwater® Switch rods provide high-end performance at an excellent price, giving you the back-saving ease of two-handed casting with wallet-saving benefits. Now you can chase steelhead across the country and still have enough gas money to make it back home.
