T&T has perfected the idea of a switch rod with the DNA Switch series. These rods are truly versatile and built to allow anglers to cast one-handed or two-handed, overhead or Spey. Made to be lightweight, the DNA Switch rods flex deep into the butt section but maintain a strong enough rod blank for easy mending and the efficient overhead casting of heavy nymph rigs. Top-notch componentry finishes these rods for a dynamic blend of functionality and artful elegance.
Clear-Coated Graphite Blank - T&T’s clear-coated graphite technology supports the versatility of the DNA Switch rods. The blank makes these rods light enough for single-handed applications including nymphing and overhead casting. That being said, the rod is also medium-fast action and deep flexing for improved traditional Spey and sustained anchor casting.
Titanium Stripping Guides - Titanium stripping guides are heavy-duty and lightweight. These guides will easily shoot a host of Scandi or Skagit style lines and are also tangle-resistant for worry-free casting.
Universal Snake Guides - Universal snake guides are easy and efficient. These guides accommodate a host of different Spey lines and are used by many major rod manufacturers for their sleek profile and low-friction design.
Milled Aluminum Reel Seat w/Maple Spacer and Double Downlocking Components - The reel seat on the DNA Switch is designed to withstand weather and wear. A pewter gray milled aluminum design with heavy-duty double downlocking components and a beautiful maple spacer make the reel seat of the DNA Switch functional and stylish. An ultra-premium cork Switch style grip makes casting and fighting fish on the swing easy and comfortable.
Aluminum Rod Tube - The DNA Switch comes in a blue powder-coated aluminum rod tube that protects the rod during travel and transportation. These tubes are durable and include a T&T rod sock for increased fly rod protection.
T&T Lifetime Warranty - As of July 2019, T&T offers an original owner lifetime warranty against breakage due to defects in materials or workmanship. Rods must be registered with T&T within 30 days of purchase. The warranty does not cover lost sections or lost rods, normal wear and tear, neglect or intentional breakage. T&T will also repair rods for a $55 service fee provided they’re registered to the original owner.
