Echo's new flagship rod series replacing the Echo 3 series. Designed by founder Tim Rajeff, one half of the rod casting and design guru Rajeff brothers (brother Steve is the designer for G. Loomis).
Exceptionally advanced, high-modulus graphite and modern resins make the Echo Trout series rods well-suited to cast flies and lines of various sizes and densities in that “sweet spot” distance of 30-50 feet. To protect light tippets, Echo made a fast action design with an ultra-sensitive tip section in the lighter weights. To help carry heavier sinking lines and meatier flies, the 6 wt’s tip section has been strengthened to carry the load and lift more line when needed. Unlike our other series of rods, each size Echo Trout model has a unique action suited to that rod’s typical application. All models are light in the hand to minimize fatigue and increase casting efficiency.
The unique handle shape allows the angler to use the thumb on top grip, the finger on top, or extended finger grip. We chose an anodized aluminum reel seat to lessen the effort needed to maintain your gear and threw in a blue colored sliding hood that matches the thread wraps. They feature a semigloss finish to decrease “line stick” and are all four piece to make it easier to travel.
