The Echo Ion XL fly rods bring true performance to an entry-level budget. Perfect for the freshwater angler heading to the salt, or as a cost conscious primary or backup rod, they have remarkably low swing weight and a crisp medium-fast to fast action. Equally at home fishing for smallmouth or salmon in freshwater or throwing Toads to tarpon in the Keys, all models feature salt corrosion resistant components. As always, they come with sock and tube, plus Echo’s Lifetime Warranty. More bang, less bucks….This is Echo’s mission. Ships Free!!
