My initials forays into switchery hasn't done me all that much good, I'm waiting for someone to come buy and take my Cabela's LST off my hands.

Why didn't you like it? I thought you were a proponent of two-handed, or is it you want a better one...?

I want to upgrade to a two handed surf rod . The switch gets the job done. But the surf rod is a better tool for the job I need it for .

they're not fast (I was going to bash orvis but guess I should watch what I say now that afish is working for them)- coltons sounds like the best deal right now unless you want to watch e-bay for a sage or loomis



Hey Skil, don't let anything influence what you post on here. Post away!

I cast some of the rods mentioned. The TFO Ticrx is a fast and powerful rod, but fairly heavy. Fred's Colton rod is very fast, kinda stiff but great for an aggressive caster. The Orvis Clearwater rods (tipflex) are not as fast, maybe easier to load for some casters. All these rods are suitable for the job, but like all rods choices, it's really up to the individual and how it casts and fishes for them. As always, try casting a bunch of rods in your price range and pick the one that works best for you.

Try the winston ascent rods very fast and you can catch em on close out for around $119.

I have the 9’, 8wt TFO TiCr and it is a nice rod for the price but I will confirm what others have said, it is stiff and heavy. I will add that to me it seems it is best suited for longer casts (40+ feet) and if fishing smaller waters where casts are within 30 feet, it really doesn't load properly and should probably be overlined.

A really nice bass rod is the Sage largemouth or smallmouth rod. That really is a nice rod. The drawback is it is less than 8 feet I believe but it casts like a dream.

Another rod I picked up as a spare is a 9’, 7wt TFO Professional series that I over line with 8wt line. Although I haven’t had a lot of stream time with it, it seems much nicer to cast and is a little lighter than the TiCr – and also less expensive.

I have never seen a 10' rod that I would call "fast". Maybe they exist and they are out of my price range... but once you get above 9', things start getting whippy.

10' tfo teeny 5wt. its rad. i also have a 9' teeny in 8wt. they claim both are fast, but there's no comparision even taking into effect the difference in weights.. the 5 doesn't feel near as fast to me, and i can make it dance; but the 8wt feels like a broomstick and i overline it by 2.

I would whole heartedly recommend the TFO Teeny signature rods.

I do wish I'd have bought the 10' 8wt, though.

There's always the next one.

Those St Croix Bank robber rods look like they would be nice for bassin'. Though what I have works just fine.
