This rod is ideal for swinging leeches for trout on rivers in Bristol Bay or casting for Dollies or Pinks off of beaches in SE Alaska, Washington and B.C. Also a great summer steelhead rod for rivers like the Rogue, Deschutes and Grande Ronde.
Change over to a singlehand line and this rod converts to a nymphing/beading machine terrorizing rivers like the Agulapak, Brooks and Moraine. An outstanding rod both in the boat or on the shore.

Double Hand/Spey Application
-Airflo Scandi Compact 390-420 gr.-For dry line use such as skating dries and swinging nymphs (We like the 390gr for advanced casters and the 420 for intermediate to novice casters. Anglers who really like to load the rod will choose the 420 gr.)
-Airflo Skagit Switch 390-420gr.-For use with a sink tip and heavier flies (We like the 390gr for most sink tip needs, but those who like to heavily load the rod may prefer the 420gr.)

The new Two-Handed X rods let you experience the remarkable benefits of KonneticHD Technology through access to the more powerful lower sections of the rod, allowing for easier and more efficient load carry through the casting stroke. The shaft’s significantly enhanced recovery and crisper tip stop optimize line speed to deliver long, smooth casts. The decreased vertical movement and vibrations in the blank result in a more accurate and efficient presentation.
