10'8" 6wt switch rod "Bobcat"

This moderate-fast action RX7 Rainshadow switch rod blank wears its Montana State University Bobcat colors with pride! Royal blue and metallic gold lace this cross-wrap to make up a simple but detailed eight pointed star.

This vibrant 7 wt RX7 Rainshadow runs wild with color! A collage of neon creates the axis of this cross-wrap, and will be sure to stand out among any rod in the arsenal not only for its individual design but its balance in strength, sensitivity, and lightweight feel.
