THIS ROD HAS LIGHT HANDLE USE.
The Beulah 10’8” 7wt Platinum Switch rod our quintessential summer steelhead Switch Fly rod. This fly rods deceptive lightness will have you thinking you are fishing a 9′ 5 wt until you load it up and fire a 80’ laser cast across the river with ease. The Beulah 10’8” 7 weight Platinum Switch rods flex pattern drastically departs from our new 5 and 6 weight Switch rods taking on a much deeper loading (slightly regressed) characteristic making this essentially a bit more of a short Spey rod with excellent nymphing and overhead casting ability. This rod shines as a Summer Steelhead rod and has a fast recovery making it formidable for inshore or in estuaries, salt water fishing.
The Platinum 7wt Switch rod is going to compliment a relaxed and compact casting stroke where less is definitely more. It is unbelievable how good this Switch rod can be with a matched Scandinavian or Skagit shooting head to cover all down and across presentations from dry lines and two fly slider systems or sink tips with weighted leeches. The Platinum Switch 7 weight has a slightly elongated fore and aft grips to balance out the longer 10’8” Switch length .
