Default Re: The rebellious switch rod

Most of the people here are probably more accomplished than me but I find the line - rod ratios pretty important. I actually cut my lines back so the line + tip length is 2.7 times my rod length although according to Ed Ward anywhere from 2.5 - 3.5 times should work. So for my 10.5' switch rod I use a 17.5' head and 10' sinktips. Since I do the 'skagitmaster style' all of my casts are sustained anchor casts (snap c, double spey, perry pokes). I still don't know how to switch cast or single spey and don't really have any desire to learn. Works well for me but I know that others have vastly different 'styles'. I suppose that's part of what makes Spey so interesting (& confusing) :-)
