Default G.Loomis "FR 1388/9-3" GLX Two-Handed Rod****SwitchRod?????

Would the G.Loomis "FR 1388/9-3" GLX Two-Handed Rod be a true Switch Rod?

And why?

If so I would truly appreciate any help in purchasing the proper lines, heads & leaders to allow me to cover various types of conditions.

I would like to use the rod as a Switch Rod and be able to learn the type of casts associated, ie...The Snap-T, Traditional Spey, Scandinavian (Scandi) and Skagit (Pacific Northwest) styles of fly casting.

Is this a pipe dream?
Is this doable?
Is this going to be a tough task to learn with this Rod?

So many questions!!!

I've been using this Rod as an overhead casting Steelhead Rod, with a WF-8 line for nymphing and dry fly, with a Teeny sink tip for streamer and nymphing & with a running line for
PM Chuck & Duck nymphing.

It has been an awesome Rod for a dozen years, my favorite Steehead Rod of all time by far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would just love it if this turned out to be a Switch Rod Gem!!!

Thank you anyone for any help you can give me!

May the waters always move you~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Jeffo
