The Diamond² Spey shares the same pedigree as its predecessor but with lighter, crisper blanks for an even better casting performance.
Designated with our Optimum Head Weight (OHW) in grams, that reflects the ideal loading point of the rod… the sweet spot. For a perfectly balanced outfit, match the Diamond Spey to a specific ‘Head weight’ from our range of Snowbee 3-D ‘Spey’ and ‘Scandinavian Spey’ lines.

10167 Diamond² Spey 12ft 6ins (#7/8)
A great all round small river Spey rod, now with an improved and more responsive action. This rod performs superbly in tight spaces, throws a great long-line when required and makes light of any small to medium river situation.
For the traditionalist the 15’ Spey takes the art of double handed Spey casting to a new level. Presenting a long line with effortless ease and with an agility and feel light enough to remain responsive all day long.
“Being a Guide on Vancouver Island is difficult, rewarding and always intriguing, simply because you never know what you might find at the end of your rod. Most importantly you have to trust that tool to get the job done. The Snowbee Diamond² Spey Rod range is without question the most reliable, efficient and fun to use rods I have ever used. These well addressed, light in hand, tip savvy and powerful sticks get the job done with ease. Landing a 50lb bright Chinook Salmon on the 12’ 6” rod was as confidently managed as was a 25lb wild West Coast Winter Steelhead, or a beautiful 2lb Sea Run Cutthroat Trout. Skagit, Scandi or Traditional, this range fits the bill.”

Following on from the tremendous success of the Prestige Switch range, the new Diamond² Switch rods offer superb performance, coupled with affordable value. These adaptable rods match numerous applications and will find favour with those salmon or sea-trout anglers, fishing a wide range of rivers and conditions.
The modern day Switch rods fill this need perfectly and our new Diamond² Switch rods are no exception.
Using our well-proven Tri-Modulus carbon technology, the 4-pce blanks offer a crisp, fast performance, which lends itself perfectly to overhead, Spey or underhand, Skagit style casting. We find that Switch rods are also becoming the choice of increasing numbers of lady or older fishers, who find single handed casting or double handed Spey casting all day long, a bit of a strain. The Diamond² Switch provides effortless casting for all-day comfort, but with the power to match many heavier Spey rods.
Finished in our usual Diamond livery and with the same popular features as our Spey rods.
10171 Diamond² Switch 10ft 6ins #7 4-pce
A great all round rod ideally suited to both smaller rivers or stillwaters, where increasing numbers of anglers are using Switch rods, both from the shore or boat. A crisp, responsive action allowing effortless casting.
Designed for medium to larger rivers where a step-up in line weight is required and allows for extra distance. An ideal rod for both sea-trout or salmon, particularly in heavily wooded areas, where a longer, traditional Spey rod would cause problems.
A long shallow front taper provides a smooth energy transfer for controlled and accurate presentation. Switch lines are ideally fished with a Snowbee Poly-Coated Leader, allowing different fishing depths, depending on the density used. A short, steep rear taper compresses the weight into the head where it’s needed and connects smoothly to a fine diameter, continuous running line for minimum friction and maximum shootability.
