Thanks for the review. I think it's similar to an Ambush.

I'm not a fan. I tried it on my 6wt switch rod. I think the running line section is still too thick. It's pretty clunky through my guides when I spey cast it. The spool I got also has some quality control issues. I'm probably going to send it in for warranty. But with that said, it cast's heavy streamers well over short to medium distance. I just think it could be redesigned a bit better for spey style casting. For overhead casting it works great. But the whole reason to own a switch rod is to be able to spey cast it. That's my two cents worth.

Thanks for the review. I am using the Airflo switch floater on my sage 4116 switch rod and it's very nice as well

Yep, running is kinda thick for distance shooting, but it is advantage for stripping.
