Default Re: 5 wt switch rods any suggestions

I have casted a Sage Z-Axis 5110-4, but I have not fished it. I tried it with a 275 grain and 325 grain Skagit Short line. It has plenty of zip to it. It should throw moderately weighted or moderately wind resistant flies.

I also casted a Beulah Classic Switch 5/6. I casted it with the matching Elixir Switch line (a shortened Scandi line) and floating tip. This rod is not quite as fast as the Z-Axis. I am sure with the right line, it can throw bass flies.

Every major brand now has a switch. If you could find a retailer that will allow you to cast some, give them a test ride.
