Default Re: 5 wt switch rods any suggestions

I haven't any experience with a 5-wt. switch rod, but I do have experience with both a Sage Z-Axis and a ZG Helios, both in 11' 7-wt. switch configurations. I was amazed how much lighter the ZG Helios was. I don't know how much difference the weight would count for if you do mainly two-handed Spey casting, but I can tell you that it made a real difference casting one-handed as I mostly do. I stayed out on the water a whole lot longer with the lighter ZG Helios.
