On a recent trip to Pyramid Lake, an old baseball elbow injury reemerged after casting a shooting head with my 8 weight for 4 days. More than two months later, my elbow is still giving me problems so I've been thinking of buying my first two-handed rod. The problem is that I have no experience with such rods and don't know where to begin. I would use it at Pyramid Lake twice a year with a fast sinking tip to hopefully increase my casting distance and save my elbow and for the occasional steelhead/salmon trip to the PNW. I'm leaning toward a 7 weight or 6/7 weight. Looking at a TCX or TFO Deer Creek and would also consider Echo. But first need to determine whether a switch or spey rod would be best for my intended use? Any advice appreciated.
