Mackenzie FX1 Switch Fly Rod
Switch rods have taken a great leap in popularity in recent years with many anglers adopting lighter tackle for various forms of fishing techniques. The versatility and fun of modern switch rods has been the main draw in the increase in popularity.
Switch rods can be used in many situations where the bigger rods may not be appropriate, salmon fishing in low water conditions, small spate rivers as well as sea trout fishing. The Switch rod perfectly forms the transition between the single hander and the double handed salmon rods.
The new Mackenzie Graphene Switch rods are of course crafted to the same high spec as the double handed rods and are also constructed using the same technology as the Mackenzie FX1 Graphene range. The new rods are also available in a mid-flex and fast flex actions and have undergone the comprehensive development and testing to create the perfect combination of flex and recovery. The mid flex rod is designed for the use of sinking tips and slightly larger flies in mind with a slightly more progressive but strong action. The fast flex rods have a perfectly designed taper which generates a faster line speed for precise and accurate casting.
