Thanks for the replies!
I have been looking at switch & spey rods for a year or two now and often been tempted to take the plunge and order one, but it's been a lot of doubt on my end that's kept me from ordering.
I hate to invest in a complete outfit (rod, reel, line(s)) and find it's not really an advantage over single hand rods for my fishing needs & style.
I stumbled across this rod while looking for a 5wt single hand rod and after some quick checking on the internet I have to think the seller has purchased some stock to re-sell and knows nothing about rods. The add has a single hand rod pictured, but the description (clipped & pasted) from Wright McGills site for the correct model number, and the same price as the single hand rods. From what I can find the rod was around $300 new, is fairly good quality, and might be a bargain at that price.
Anyway, I went ahead and "clicked", so I should have it in a week or two.
I'll probably try a wf7f and a wf8f line on it to get the feel of the rod, and the feel of casting it. I've been having some problems with my right wrist (I'm right-handed) and hopefully the rod will relieve some of the strain roll casting a single handed rod puts on the wrist. Not bad pain in the wrist, but an hour or two of roll casting is usually enough fun for one day.
If I like the rod and casting style I'll be ordering a line for it, and the "custom" line sounds like a good investment!
