Re: St Croix Switch rods any one here ever cast one?
The only thing I can say is that I love St. Croix rods. Though I've never cast on of their spey rods, I love their other rods.
I'm not sure what kind of spey line you're buying. If you're buying a Scandi rod I think you want something with a somewhat softer tip, a spey rod that bends down to the middle and into the butt. If you're buying a Skagit line you probably want a spey rod with a stiffer action.
