Mythological rods from Scott – L2H SERIES

Scott has introduced a smooth and powerful new line of Spey and Switch Rods that will fit all of todays casting styles. Scott L2H series Spey rods are designed and optimized for today’s new line tapers and casting styles. Scott is the industry leader in developing blank technologies that help reduce torque. For the budget minded price point the consumer isnt giving up anything in quality; just like every rod Scott makes they are hand built from start to finish in Montrose, Colorado. As a big Switch rod fan I would love to get the model Scott call L2H 1157/4. A great all-purpose switch rod for small to medium sized rivers, sea trout, grilse and medium sized salmon. This rod has the grunt to lift heavy rigs and turn powerful fish. For more info please go to this link:
