They’ve finally arrived, the much anticipated and touted ECHO Glass Spey & Switch models. We’ve been playing with these for a couple of months (we magically got our hands on one of the early production models), and it’s thumbs up from everyone. Easy casting, powerful and fun. Yes, fun. How can a fly rod be fun? Try one and see.
While we – and other reviewers – believe that these are great learning tools, they are also deadly in the hands of experienced spey casters. It’s one big spring that cannot be overpowered. They are also relatively light, considering how much glass and resin is involved in the construction.
The price is unbeatable, and I’ve stated before that the price would appeal to many as a second or third rod, but we would have no problem using these as a primary rod for nearly any two-handed application.
We have the 12′ 4″ #6, 12′ 9″ #7 and the 11′ #6 in stock and available for demo. Swing by and try them out if you’re in Craiglandia. Get your’s now, as I don’t expect them to last long.
