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. Half-wells cork handles with composite pressure zones for 5- and 6-wt. rods, and ultralight half-wells cork handles with pressure zones are standard for 8-ft. rods and shorter. Alignment dots allow for easy assembly. 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. Includes brown Cordura® nylon-covered rod tube.
Made of blend of cast and machined aluminum, the Ion fly reels feature a maintenance-free Rulon® disc drag that delivers backlash-free, instant drag reaction from a one-way roller clutch bearing. The drag's low start-up resistance protects light tippets. Stainless steel internal components are primarily designed for freshwater use. They can be used in the saltwater, provided extra care is taken to clean and lubricate them after each day on the water. Positive position, click-drag knobs. Incoming/outgoing audible click. Fast line-pickup, large-arbor spools. Impact-resistant matte-black finish.
