Initial review

Bothe of the rods were exactly what I was hoping for. I have one your previous two ganders and these new models seem a bit more to my liking. I have only grass cast them and probably won’t get to fish them until next spring as I am moving to Oregon Rogue River valley. The customer service was excellent. The delivery was right on time.

11' 5WT Switch Rod

Just got the 11' 5WT Switch rod. I have both 11' 7WT and 11' 5WT Switch rods now. These are amazing rods. 11' 7WT is matched nicely with RIO Switch Chucker #6 (420 grain}. 11' 5WT is matched nicely with RIO Switch Chucker #4 (325 grain). Both of these combos cast like a dream. 7WT let you cast even heavier flies and sinking tips or VersiLeaders/PolyLeaders. Both 7WT and 5WT take sinking VersiLeaders and PolyLeaders nicely. I have other rods rods single handed and Spey rods, but most of the time I will use these 2 rods. My Redington Chromer 12.6 7WT rod is only used when I need to cast really heavy sinking tips and flies or need more distance, especially when back casting is not possible due to trees/ bushes behind me. Both of these Wild Water Switch rods cast nicely overhead back cast and Spey cast. That is why I like them so much ...very practical. Another thing is now there is a trend with Fast Action rods. I prefer Medium Fast or Slow Action rods. I like to spread the load and rod bend on longer portion of the rod. Just a personal preference. Both of these 11' Switch rods are Slow Action. Highly recommend to buy. You will love it.

5 weight switch rod

I put a 7/8/9 Cortland ID reel loaded with a Scientific Angler Lite integrated line with a 210 grain Mini Skagit head on this rod. It casts OK. It works best with a sinking tip leader attached to the Skagit head. Move up to a slightly heavier head.
