fiberglass switch rod in good hands

Zach Wheeler fired up an laser loop on the Lamiglas switch rod. This fiberglass rod is amazing light due to the relative short length. But the smooth feel and strong butt section will get the fly out there 70-80 feet with a breeze effort. Nice and gentle and out she goes. Fiberglass is a overlooked material in switch/spey rods. If you got a chance to build one, you will understand what I said. This particular rod is built from 9' 9 weight Lamiglas blank and installed 1.5 feet graphite butt section to make it total 10' 8 weight switch rod. 420 grain scandi head and Airflo 540 grain @ 20' skagit switch line is what I like on this rod. Also I built a 440 grain @ 16' line for special tight quarter fishing condition. Cast like a little sweet home made brownie! : )
