Thomas & Thomas Blanks - DNA Switch

Medium fast action for effortless casting with one or two hands.

Spey is in our DNA. And now Switch too. We don't view Switch rods merely as small Spey rods. We make a clear distinction between the two and have worked hard to develop rods that really do enable you to ‘Switch’ between any conceivable casting style with a single rod. The versatility of these rods cannot be overstated – every style of casting from single handed, single handed spey, two handed overhead, traditional spey and sustained anchor styles can be accommodated by the unique actions of the DNA Switch.

Tom Dorsey has designed all kinds of fly rods from bamboo, fiberglass and graphite and has felt the pressure of building rods commissioned by the President of the United States. So when he describes the development of our DNA Switch rods as the biggest design challenge of his career you get a feel for the level of sophistication employed to create these actions. Now in 4 and 5 weights for trout and warmwater applications the DNA Switch is a new triumph in the continual evolution of fly rods and one we are very proud to offer.

The Marketing Blurb
The Switch movement continues to gather momentum and as a fly fishing category we can now firmly state that Switch is here to stay.

Each model comes in a four-piece configuration and offers a level of feel and versatility that will appeal to trout, steelhead and salmon anglers alike. These rods offer a moderate fast action for effortless single and double handed casting. The culmination of two years of experimentation by T&T rod designer, Tom Dorsey, our prototype models have already found favor among trout nympher’s, summer steelheader’s and for Atlantic salmon fishing from the canoe, Canadian style.

The Technical Take
The new Thomas and Thomas Switch rods feature the latest graphite and resin technology and the high standard of components and craftsmanship you have come to expect from T&T.

The 10’ rods are designed for situations where the angler chooses to cast overhead for the majority of the time but wishes to have the versatility to make controlled double handed roll casts when room for a backcast becomes restricted. We all know those pools where the fish lie in the most difficult to fish positions. These rods offer you the versatility to extract a fish or two from previously unfishable locales.

The Truth
Put these Switch rods in the hands of serious anglers and you can almost hear the cogs start turning as they raid their memory bank to think of the many fishing situations where these rods just made their fishing that bit more effective.

That’s the truth. And that’s the reason we feel this series will be the Switch rods you’ll eventually own.
