10'8"
Medium Action; Slightly Regressed Flex

The Beulah 10f8h 7wt Platinum Switch rod is the quintessential steelhead switch rod. This fly rods deceptive lightness will have you thinking you are fishing a 5 wt until you load it up and fire a 80f laser cast across the river with ease. Beulah Fly Rods 10f8h 7 weight Platinum Switchfs flex pattern drastically departs from our new 5 and 6 weights taking on a much deeper loading (slightly regressed) characteristic making this essentially a bit more of a short spey rod with nymphing and overhead casting ability. This rod truly gets it done as a Summer Steelhead rod. It is unbelievable how good this switch rod can be with a matched Scandinavian or Skagit shooting head to cover all down and across presentations from dry lines and two fly slider systems to sink tips and weighted leeches. The Platinum 7wt Switch rod is going to compliment a relaxed and compact casting stroke where less is definitely more. Platinum Switch 7 weight has slightly elongated fore and aft grips to balance out the longer 10f8h Switch length.

Use:
Light Spey work as well as nymphing from a boat or wading. Great for trophy trout in Alaska, silvers from the beach, sea run browns and steelhead.
