In Topic: MHX Switch Rod

10 December 2018 - 06:56 PM

Obviously, this forum is, if not dead, moribund. 

 

Building a switch rod is no different from any other fly rod, except for one thing.  You need to add a longish fighting butt.  I would suggest one that is 3" to 4" long, depending on the size of your hand.  This becomes the rear grip, when you do a spey cast, so it needs to be comfortable, but not so long that it interferes with single hand casting.
