Echo Ion/Ion Fly Combo -
Pair up an Echo Ion fly rod with an Echo Ion fly reel and take advantage of this first-rate money saving combo. Includes Prestige Plus weight-forward floating fly line (a $39.99 value) and backing.
When rod designer and competitive fly-caster Tim Rajeff set about designing the Ion fly-rod series, he had large flies, stiff winds and unyielding fish in mind. The Ion's stiff backbone generates the high line speeds and tight loops necessary to punch big flies into a strong headwind without causing hand and arm fatigue. The fly rod also has a stiff backbone for slugging it out with ornery denizens of the deep. This series features full-wells cork handles with composite pressure zones. Alignment dots allow for easy assembly. These four-piece travel rods have matte, stealth-grey blanks and 1-1⁄4" or 2" fighting butts depending on the model. Oversized stripper guides. Hard chrome single-foot snake guides. 30" “fish hero” mark. Each rod comes with a grey Cordura®-nylon-covered rod tube.
Made of a hybrid of cast and machined aluminum, these Ion fly reels have all the benefits of a fully machined bar-stock reel without the high price. All fly reels are coated with an impact-resistant matte-black finish. Stainless steel internal components.
