Total newbie here. What would be easier to learn on a spey or switch rod? I'm looking at getting one of the two soon.
Good point.Learn on whichever one you want to fish with.
A 10'6" two-handed rod is a very short rod indeed. Personally I really do not like rods under 11'. 12' is already on the short side IMO.The rods I'm looking at are a 10'6 switch and a 12' spey.
I actually just bought a 9 foot 11wt rod with a fighting butt to try like that.IMO, searcher1970, for that kind of fishing I'd use a 9'6" single hander with a switch head.
I would hope no-one will buy a rod they don't intend to use, but, in most fishing situations, there is usually a range of plausible options, each with various tradeoffs.Call me crazy but I'd just buy the actual rod that suits my needs instead of buying something I'm not gonna use because it's "easier to learn on".
