Trout Spey / switch rod blank 10’6” #3/4 spey (275-350gn) (4-piece) $81.53


Trout Spey / switch rod blank 10’6” #3/4 spey (275-350gn) (4-piece)

A medium line trout spey or light switch rod in 4-piece configuration.   Medium-fast progressive action, a superior performing blank with real zip made by the maker of our TIM, TNH and TNHX ranges in a blend of intermediate and higher modulus 30 +36 ton carbon fibre.  

Blank matt grey-brown carbon, semi-sanded finish, includes a black rod sock. 

For use where you might use a 5/6wt single handed rod including streamer fishing.  

Line recommendations

Below grain weight and head length guidelines for water-anchored spey style roll casting based on our product testing.  Line preference is personal to your casting style and end use, be prepared to experiment. 

We preferred: A short (14’-18’) head skagit 250-300 grains with a 5-8’ polyleader.  Full grain window 275-350gn head plus tip up to about 25’ combined.   

For Scandi applications try a single handed or compact head light spey style line of a similar or slightly lighter grain rating and a total head length including tip of 25-30' (if the line design requires one, a SH line may not). 

Overhead single-handed casting: This is the same blank we sell as the TIM 10667.   Not only a cracking light spey rod, it also performs very well standard overhead casting as a medium-fast action boat/loch style fly rod (AFFTA #6-7 line, 160-180gn).  

For rod testing we used flat mono shooting line and a poly tip or poly leader of 5-8’.   If using a poly tip (with a PVC loop both ends) finish off with a short (4-7’) tapered nylon leader for best fly turnover.  With a poly leader (PVC loop one end, nylon line the other) simply add an optional tippet ring and a few feet of your final tippet.
