At 12'0" for #5/6 line, (360 grain Scandi - 400 grain Skagit), this rod is at the very light end of the spey rod range. Some may call this a Switch rod, but it's right on the edge so it's up to the individual angler, your skill level. It is a joy to cast most summer time patterns with floating lines and can handle Skagit heads if you need to dredge the bottom, with 10 grains per foot tips. It is ideal for summer steelhead, but if a big "B-run" grabs hold, you still have enough power to even the odds.
