Re: New Switch Rod & Reel, need everything else......
I got the chance to use the new Orvis Switch line on 11' 8wt and 11' 7wt Helios switch rods. It's pretty damn impressive and I enjoyed it more than the Beulah Elixir switch line I am using now. It's worth checking out. As a disclaimer, while I tried out a number of the casts you mention, I am absolutely an amateur, especially as compared to Fred! Plus, the advice he gives goes quite a bit further than a simple line suggestion!
