What's your price range? The new redington dually 4wt is pretty sweet for $250. I have the Beulah platinum 10' 5wt switch with the matching 5wt switch chucker and it's definitely a two handed swing rod, even tho it's 10'. A little much for 12" trout tho.

I use a dEcho 11'9'' 4wt for bass, trout and steelhead. I may try it on northerns this year. The only limit on the rod is the weight of the tips and flies you can roll out.
The grain window of this Echo rod is the same grain window (300-325) as that Beulah 5/6 posted above. So that rod should handle 12ft of T-8 with a 3/16th conehead streamer with no problem.
I've casts those redington Duallys with a Rio Switch Chucker. I though they were nice casting rods though, I preferred a 5wt line on the 6wt Dually uing the Rio Chucker.
