It ain't no switch rod. Custom Epic DH11 glass two handed fly rod by Shane Gray.

Building a two handed rod is no mean feat - it's literally the equivalent of building two single hand rods - and then some. Building a truly great two hander is the realm of the master rod builder only.

Shane Gray of Graywolf fame has done a remarkable job on what is the first DH11 build we've seen up close and personal - and it's breathtaking. Built for a long time client, Shane once again shows why he's regarded as a master builder. 

As would be the case with most single handed builds, the fore and aft grip for this rod were glued and turned on the blank  - A mammoth task on such a large rod - but one that was clearly worth the effort. The result is a spectacular two handed glass rod of supreme quality and craftsmanship.
