The take. The moment of truth. Where all things unconsciously melt away from our minds like a cube of ice in a pot of boiling water. Work, bills, the opposite sex, and all of life's other road bumps are smoothed out and completely forgotten the instant a fish takes our fly.Read more
Tim isn't just your average rod designer. He happens to be one of the best fly casters to ever roam this planet (don't tell him we said that), he's a dedicated fly angler, and he understands every technical aspect of rod design. Tim designed Echo Rods to be the best fly rods you can buy. They're not just good starter sticks, they're designed for hardcore anglers from all walks of life, at a price everyone can afford.
When Tim set out to create the next generation of affordable trout rods he had no idea they were going to turn out so darn good looking. Getting the action and power correct was his main goal. All but a few of these rods have smooth Medium Fast actions and possess power that would be considered close to 'average or normal' for each line rating. So you get no surprises when choosing an ECHO CARBON rod.
With a matte brown finish and a custom Rajeff Sports Echo Man reel seat, the ECHO CARBON rods truly stand out.
I bought this rod because I have two others of the same model; an 8-6 4 wgt. and an 8-6 5 wgt. I like the crispness to the rod, yet just right to get accurate casts. To me, it hits the sweet spot.
