I finished up and now am ready to ship off this Swift Epic Boca Grande 8'6" 12wt 4pc. It was a fun build, and I am very pleased with the finished product. I look forward to working on more of these blanks!

A couple glass Switch rods - FOR SALE

I am offering up a couple of the switch rods I built on the AR Spey fiberglass blanks. Both of these rods have been shortened from the original length of 11ft. I am offering them at a low price. They both cast really well. Contact me if interested.

The first one I built is a 10'10" 4 piece and rated as a single hand 2/3wt but I do prefer it with a 4 or 5wt line. The tip is about 2 inches shorter than the other three sections because I decided to trim it back after I built and cast it. The cork is not quite as good as the second one. Nice down lock aluminum slide band reel seat. Asking $250 shipped with rod bag no tube.

I built this one a short time later, again modifying the blank. This rod is 10'7" and all sections are the same length, I trimmed and re-set the ferrules on this one. Better cork on this rod and a threaded aluminum reel seat. Again a 4 or 5wt single hand line in my hands, but have been told to look at 250gr to 295gr for these rods. Asking $300 shipped with rod bag, no tube.

All the pieces are now done for the next EPIC Bandit I am building out. This one will have titanium reel seat hardware over stacked bamboo, along with a couple titanium stripping guides. Looking forward to the finish rod!
