Over the last few years there has been a growing demand for a small Spey rod that can be used either as a single handed rod or as a small double handed rod when needed. Switch rods are now also seen as a natural progression/transition for many anglers coming from a Single handed rod back ground onto the two handed rods , with that Mackenzie have designed a rod that can do all his equally well, the new G2 Switch rod.
The 11ft2 G2 Switch has all the qualities of it’s bigger brothers in the range, but this rod can be used in many situations where the bigger rods struggle or where the single handed rod just isn’t big enough. The lower handle of the Switch rod can be screwed on and off to make it into a single handed rod, or keep it on as a small double handed rod for doing small easy Spey casts. This rod has a lovely progressive action, but still retaining a fairly fast recovery.
This is an ideal rod for loch boat fishing, sea trout fishing and fishing for salmon on some of the small rivers where delicate, accurate presentation on steep or tree lined banks is important.
