Default Re: A switch outfit for trout?

I recently got the echo 5wt switch. Rio Skagit short head 325gr, Nautilus FWX 7/8. Let me say its schaweeeetttttt. I guide in AK and it will be the ultimate trout rod. It handles t-8 and t-11 without a problem. T-11 over 10ft gets a little tougher to turn over. So if your wanting to throw anything over T-11 i would reccomend a rod with some more stank. My buddy has a Z-axis 6wt switch that handles t-14 without a problem, got alot of stank in that rod. Switch/spey for trout is my new love
