Do a search for the Batson 11' 5-wt. switch rods; many members own and/or have built them. Nice rods, particularly for the price. Others will chime in re: Anderson, Meiser, Burkie, etc. I own the 15'6" 4/5/6 Meiser; incredible, but obviously not a switch. I have the Batson and like it, but will one day purchase Meiser's conversion rods simply because of the workmanship. I fish the Batson with a range of SH lines, all heavy enough to load the rod as necessary, with long leaders.
