Tim has done it again!
We’ve spent the last year designing and tweaking, bending and breaking, and this is the result: seven unique new rods that run the gamut from #2 dry fly sticks to #12 fiberglass monster tamers. All rods will be available Fall 2016.
ECHO Bad Ass Glass
Ready to chase Cthulhu with a ‘glass rod? The B.A.G. was designed to tackle the last fiberglass frontier: big water and big fish. Perfect for stalking the flats for tarpon, blind casting to albies, or swinging for steel. Slab fighting power, meet fiberglass fun. Available in #8, 9, 10, and 12. All are 9’0″. MSRP: $274.99
Some things are just faster than others. The E.P.R. (Extreme Performance Rod) was designed by Tim and Pat Ehlers for chasing fish bigger than the average bear. It features a super-fast tip to load easily at short distances and the most powerful bottom half that’s ever been offered in an ECHO rod so you never run out of gas when punching into the wind. Available in #8, 9, 10, and 12. All are 9’0″. MSRP: $449.99
When flawless fly presentation is the name of the game, the DRY is your huckleberry. True to size, the DRY balances perfectly with a standard-weighted line and loads easily at ‘real’ fishing distances. Finicky trout will never see you coming. Available in #2-6. All are 9’0″. MSRP: $229.99
ECHO Boost Beach
The Trip is our answer for folks looking for an ultra-compact rod for backpacking, travel, or the backseat. With a smooth blend of action and power, these rods will handle all fishing conditions. The Trip’s 8-piece design fits nicely into a backpack or briefcase for those ‘important meetings’ you can miss. Available in #5, 6, and a salt-ready #8. All are 9’0″. MSRP: $279.99
ECHO TR Spey
The TR received an overhaul for 2017. A favorite for years, the TR features a fast action and gobs of butt power for lifting heavy tips and heavy fish. New for this year are 11’0″ #3 and 11’4″ #4 trout spey rods. True spey actions are combined with an updated, slim diameter grip for improved feel. Brand new cosmetics keep things fresh. Available in 11’0″ #3, 11’4″ #4, 12’6″ #6, 13’0″ #7, and 13’6″ #8. MSRP: $374.99
