On big rivers, there's nothing like the reach of a two-hander for casting and managing lots of line. The idea is over a century old, but until now, the sticks have been expensive enough to bring pause to the average angler. Who wants to drop a lot of cash just to try something? Now you have no excuse. With no middleman, we've solved the problem of expense. Our beautifully appointed, 4-piece Black Watch Switch Fly Rods will allow you to "switch" back to your one-handed ways at will.

To be completely candid I got this rod as a gift and it broke on the first roll cast. Bass Pro was stellar with sending out another and it appears as though the first one just had a defect in the blank. I got this rod primarily for the Salmon River (King Salmon and Steelhead) and Lake George/Lake Champlain landlocked salmon and lake trout. This rod of course competes with the Redington Dually, and despite how tried and true the Dually is, I will say this rod is a step above. They not only delivered a good casting switch rod, but it actually looks nice. The reel seat is quality and appears to be shared by St. Croix, the grip is excellent in shape, feel, and looks. The rod guides are Fiji and of good quality with alignment dots on each section of rod. Overall, despite the first rod breaking, I will give this rod a 4 out of 5 due to the excellent price point and good performance and looks. If you are considering a switch rod and don't want to spend an arm and a leg don't hesitate to get this rod. If Bass Pro used a higher quality blank (keeping all other things the same) and priced this at 200 to 220 it would still be a value, but as it sits...great rod. Pair with the Rio Switch Chucker line for a versatile setup capable of swinging flies for steelies, dead drifting for kings, or shooting big streamers out in a lake for spring lakers.
