Being able to go from fighting butt to Spey style handle makes this a unique and versatile rod.  Truly innovative and something new.

What our friends say about the Red Truck 5110-4 Switch Rod:

Why are the best looking seams always just out of reach? When it comes to distance, there is nothing better than a Red Truck 5110-4 Switch Fly Rod. The 11 feet of reach gives an angler the length to be completely stealthy when high-sticking, or the ability to roll cast or overhead cast to the opposite bank. Leave no boulder uncovered.

With the Red Truck 5110-4 Switch Fly Rod, you now have a whole new way to fish large tailwater trout rivers or small to medium size steelhead waters. Match this rod with a short shooting head for fantastic swinging capabilities.  It also handles a longer belly single-hand line for the ultimate in dead-drift presentations. Light, versatile and fun to cast, the Red Truck 5110-4 Switch Fly Rod allows you to take control in every situation.

  • A great rod starts with the grip. Red Trucks switch grip is not only ergonomic but enhances feel and efficiency of casting and fishing.
  • Versatile design allows you to swing, skate and indicator fish.
  • Sanded and precision fit ferules, where the rod pieces come together, allow for repairs in just 3 days and eliminates the need for you to ship the entire rod back to us.
  • Effortlessly cast heavy indicator rigs.
  • The extra length makes roll casting and mending much easier.
  • Powerful mid section and butt for ease of picking up heavy flies and tips.
  • Hand made with incredible craftsmanship and premium components.
  • Weight with fighting butt is 3 3/4oz.  Spey handle adds 1/2oz.
  • All of our Diesel rods are proudly made in South Korea.

    This is one rod I’d like to add to my weapons. I had the chance to borrow this rod for the Bow River. The ten foot length was a huge asset with super sensitive action, any nibbles were immediate hook sets! It’s versatility would make this the only rod I’d fish on that river.

    Love this rod, worked great paired with a 7wt floating line. Love the fact that you can switch out handles and increase or decrease weight in the butt section. Smooth action and a great 5wt switch rod, my only complaint is I’m use to a little longer front grip on a switch rod.

    This is my favorite trout spey rod. I have it paired up with an 225 grain OPST Commando Smooth line, with 7 1/2 foot sink tips and I can turn over size 6 Sculpzillas like a champ! I like the shorter cork handle for trout spey because it keeps my casting arm tucked in the pocket when casting Skagit heads. Comes in handy when casting with brush behind you. Nice moderate fast action too. Not too mention its a pretty good looking rod too as well as great performance.

    TROUT SPEY!! This is it. Everything one would want. Great with a compact shooting head but also great with a standard 7 weight single hand line (Rio Gold). It throws great and has landed me some nice fish. My favorite line up is a 225 grain skagit style line with a bit of T10, a short piece of Maxima, a Pat’s Stone, topped off with soft hackle of the day. Enough talk, I gotta go fish….

    I bought this rod today and paired it with the Redtruck 6nine migration reel with Rio switch line. This will my new weapon for big fish hunting. Can’t wait to put into action with the rest of my arsenal of RedTruck rods and reels!! Thanks guys
