After having the opportunity to fish the IF1088-4 for a few drifts, It became quite clear that Batson Enterprises had done their homework and produced an extremely nice blank with a smooth casting action.  The combination of RX6, RX7, & RX8 graphite modulus sections in the new RX7 Switch Rods had me thinking about building a true switch rod.  One that would handle traditional single and two handed fly cast as well pull double duty as a centre-pin / float rod.
