Hey guys.

I want to build a beach rof for jacks, snook, and tarpon in the surf...as well as lakers and salmon here in MI. I'm thinking 10wt. What does a beach rod require? This rod should be able to cast overhead with two hands, as well as scandanavian/spey style.

Beulah 10wt 11'6" switch blank?

I will be trying them out soon and will let you know. You might ask Adrian or Ron Paxton who recently bought them.

Thanks Juro! I'll ask them!

Would I be better suited getting a spey blank or a switch blank? What are the requirements (if any) for a beach rod?
