    Default Swich rod in a kayak?

    Anyone using a switch rod for two handed overhead casting while sitting in a kayak? If so what rod and how does it work for you.

    Looking to try a switch to relieve stress on my wrist that was just operated on for carpal tunnel.

    thanks

    I have same question about using a switch rod in my float tube. Haven't tried it yet, but think there is an added benefit for the longer rod.

    Crotalis I use a switch rod in my cayak in S West Florida all the time. The extra length is helpful in my opinion.

    Do you cast it two-handed spey style (snap-T etc), or regular overhand technique?

    No it is a 6 wt and i cast it one handed most of the time. I will have to try a 2 handed cast next time out. Mostly my casts are overhead into the mangroves.

    What's a 'switch rod'? Is it like a spey rod?
