EFTTEX Awards 2013 - Best New Fly Rod

Scierra HMX Switch

The new HMX Switch rod is really two rods in one, says Scierra. Its design is based on the needs of a growing segment within river fishing: those anglers who fish relatively small rivers and who switch frequently between single-handed overhead casting and Spey or roll-casting.

The HMX Switch rod (7/8 weight, 11’6’’) has been specifically designed for precise casting in tight settings, and it features an action that allows the angler to load the rod quickly and cast with minimum effort and maximum precision.

Says Scierra: “Striking a balance between Spey casting qualities on the one hand and single-handed overhead casting qualities on the other isn’t an easy task, but with an extremely lightweight yet powerful medium-fast blank, the right length and proportioning of the handle, the HMX Switch represents a genuine breakthrough.”
