Re: So I'm gonna build a switch rod (or 2)...
Nice! I'll watch your progress with interest. I've been thinking about building one as well. I've been leaning towards a 7wt for large trout and bass but haven't really looked into it. I have also wondered about grips and been tempted to just buy one since I turn grips on my drill and don't know how one that long would work. Look forward to updates!
