TFO’s Axiom II Switch is two-handed rod technology reimagined. Built with many features seen in the previous Deer Creek Series, the Axiom II Switch uses proprietary kevlar technology and a sleek rod design to bring anglers a rod truly optimized for versatile single-hand and double-hand performance. Whether you’re throwing large streamers, heavy nymph rigs, or wet flies, this rod provides superb multi-technique performance.
A2 Blank Design - TFO’s A2 blank design is exceptionally efficient and dynamic. With superb energy transfer and rod loading capabilities. Each rod model is optimized for high performance and castability. The design of the blank of the Axiom II Switch makes it a rod series that caters to a broad range of casting strokes and angler ability. A2 also means the Axiom II Switch rods track beautifully, have minimum tip bounce, and limited vibration.
Two Large SiC Stripping Guides - Two large SiC stripping guides accommodate any fly line on heavier Switch rod models.
Hard Chrome Snake Guides - Hard chrome snake guides add to the durable rod design of the Axiom II Switch series. These guides are industry-accepted and time-proven.
Grey Anodized Aluminum w/Double Uplocking Component - On the Axiom II Switch rods the reel seat is full grey anodized aluminum. This minimizes corrosion and weathering. These reel seats are expertly designed to lock down large Spey/Switch reels. The Axiom II Switch also comes with a durable composite cork Spey grip for lightweight single-handed and double-handed casting.
Cordura Rod Tube - The TFO Axiom II Switch comes in a cordura rod tube to protect the rod during travel and transportation. Most TFO rods don’t come with rod tubes, however, TFO has included a rod tube in some of their latest rod models.
TFO Warranty - As of July 2019, TFO rods purchased from an authorized dealer have a no-fault lifetime warranty for the life of the registered owner. TFO will always repair or replace (at no cost to the customer) any rod with faulty workmanship or manufacturer defects. If your rod breaks or is damaged from normal wear and tear, TFO charges $35 for repairs, processing, shipping, etc.
