The Sage Pulse 7 weight switch rod is one of our favorite all-around Alaska switch rods. Big enough to handle bruiser steelhead and coho, yet it has enough feel to make it an ideal big rainbow and Dolly rod, too. At 11' 4" it is that "just right" length for both spey casting and overhead casting. A tremendous rod for the money.
The Sage Pulse 8 weight switch rod has quickly become one of our favorite mid priced rods. At 11' 4" it has the length to easily perform switch and spey casts like the Snap T and double spey, but it is compact enough to overhead cast beautifully. Whether you are chasing big steelhead, silvers, chum or even kings, the 8 weight will be your rod of choice.
