    Default Zpey HM Signature 11ft 18g Switch Rod

    Does anybody have one of these and if so what do you make of them? What line do you use with it.? I have tried the wanking handle on a casting day when Henrik was doing some stuff. The handle wouldn't cause me any issue. In fact I must say that after 10 minutes I became quite attached to it. The rod I was chucking though was not this one.

    Sorry but I can get a brand new one from a dealer cheaper than yours. Do you not like the one you have?

    I ain't bought it yet. I am gonna pick one up tomorrow to try it. I was trying to get an opinion from someone who had used one. An issue for me us that the lightest head I have is 26g. I was interested to see what line people are pairing the rod up with

    Hi, I use one with an 18g Unique head, it matches it perfectly. This is a proper switch rod not a small double hander. Overtired a few switch rods and this is by far the best so far. The signature blanks are superb, I also have the 13 footer and was on the loch practising with it yesterday, superb.
    PM me if you want any more info, I'll give you my number if you want to chat about the rod.

    Agree with Bankwheel, I would not go overloading the rod, it is purpose built for the lighter heads and the 18gram is recommended, that makes it a perfect tool for its intended purpose which is covering water on small to medium rivers (and if you like the bigger ones in low water). Good luck with it out of interest what lines/rods did you use on the casting day when you tested it?

    I did say in my original post that I used a number of Zpey rods but not this one. The heads I was using then were the Zpey that Henrik Mortensen brought with him. I will try the rod tomorrow and make a decision from there
