At the request of others we did build experimental "Spey casting" rods. All use the "bayonet mount" method for their tips. One customer broke his and purchased a new one so they must be pretty good.
Because of the loading traits of the Compound Rod they work much easier than the "standard" Spey rod, and take some time to get used to. I spent a couple of hours with a certified Spey casting instructor with these rods and he had a problem adjusting to the considerably less effort to cast these provide. Initially he found himself doing an actual, full, back-cast when he was just trying to do a simple "roll cast" set up.
Personally I'm not comfortable with Spey casting because I was started with the "double haul" and am not comfortable when I'm not working the line with my left hand. Besides, it just doesn't "feel" right, to me, to use both hands to perform a "fly cast"!
If you are interested in a Compound Spey Rod, let me know and I'll see what it will cost to build one today.
This is a 2 piece, 11', 8 weight or heavier line, with 3 different bayonet mounting tips of varying length. It's a well balanced rod of unbelievable casting ability and extreme sensitivity. Estimated price of $595.00. (Price may change and will reflect "cost to build" price changes.)
This is a 3 piece, 13', 5-9 weight lines and includes 2 butt sections and 2 different length bayonet mounted tips providing several variables on length, response and casting differences. Takes a little time to get used to all of the variables but it offers some really great distance casting and sensitivity. Estimated price $695.00. (Price may change and will reflect "cost to build" price changes.)
This is a 4 piece (easier storage) 13'9" rod with 1 bayonet mount tip that works 5-9 weight lines. Unbelievable casting ability but is recommended for the "knowledgeable" Spey caster. Estimated price of $795.00. (Price may change and will reflect "cost to build" price changes.)
Once you have contacted me, and we have confirmed the availability of the Discounted Fly Rod you want, we can work on the "how to order".
