Echo Carbon/Cabela's Prestige Plus Fly Combo -
We've matched the easily packable durability of Echo Carbon fly rods with the lightweight performance of our Prestige Plus fly reel. Combo includes Prestige Plus fly line (a $39.99) and backing.
Rod designer and competitive fly-caster Tim Rajeff designed the powerful Echo Carbon fly rods for smooth, easy-to-cast performance. The medium-fast action is not too stiff and not too soft. The Carbon series features half-wells cork handles with composite pressure zones for 5- and 6-wt. rods. Ultralight half-wells cork handles with pressure zones are standard for 8-ft. rods and shorter. Alignment dots allow for easy assembly. The rods have a matte-brown finish and anodized-aluminum, cut-away design reel seats. Single-foot snake guides. 20" “fish hero” mark on each rod. Four-piece travel design for go-anywhere convenience. Rods come with a brown Cordura® nylon-covered rod tube.
We took the value-packed performance of our popular Prestige series and stepped everything up a notch. A new disc-drag system sports a cork drag washer and adjusts to a wider range of settings. The cast-aluminum frame has an unmatched strength-to-weight ratio, and the new mid-arbor design yields plenty of backing capacity for battling long-running fish. The molded, paddle-style handle and large drag-adjustment knob round out the features on this exceptional fly reel at an amazingly low price.
