11’4 NX1 Atlas (switch) #8
Switch rods have taken a great leap in popularity in recent years with many anglers adopting lighter tackle for various forms of fishing techniques. The versatility and fun of modern switch rods has been the main draw in the increase in popularity.
Switch rods can be used in many situations where the bigger rods may not be appropriate, salmon fishing in low water conditions, small spate rivers as well as sea trout fishing. The Switch rod perfectly forms the transition between the single hander and the double handed salmon rods.
The new Mackenzie NX1 Switch rod are of course crafted to the same high spec as the double handed rods and are also constructed using the same technology as the Mackenzie NX1 range. This rod went through comprehensive development and testing to create the perfect combination of flex and recovery giving a perfectly designed taper which generates speed for precise and accurate casting.
