Diamondback Swinger Switch Rods are a smooth loading series of 4 piece 11’ to 11’ 6’’ switch rods in 4 through 8 weights with each rod featuring a unique taper relative to its size and intended application. The 11’ 4 and 5 weight rods have a smaller diameter and shorter grips, and medium action tips for swinging wet flies to trout and casting the lightest shooting heads. The 11’6’ 6 through 8 weight rods are designed with medium-fast tip action and plenty of reserve power in the butt for tossing shooting heads, making crisp mends, and handling larger fish.
Diamondback Swinger Switch Rods include features such as a glossy, dark emerald blank finish with black wraps and silver accents, a burled maple wood reelseat insert with black anodized hardware, unique ergonomic front and rear grips, and oversize stripper and stainless steel snake guides for accommodating large diameter shooting heads.
Each Swinger Switch Rod features a "Grain Window" weight for achieving proper rod load with shooting heads.
