Designed to get your fly to the target in tough conditions as fast as possible. While not a new name to the Echo brand, this new for 2020 Echo Prime model delivers the
latest in Echo performance graphite under the badge of one of their all time greats. The new Echo Prime fly rod is designed to easily, quickly and accurately deliver flies to fast moving fish on the flats or anywhere else you’re chasing powerful predators. All Echo Prime rods are 8’10”, a design to help cycle through a full cast more quickly than longer rods - increased feel and faster fly placement. A moderate but powerful action provides increased feel and flex through the cast. The shorter length also reduces torque against your hand, making casting less physically stressful. Echo’s unique Dual-Zone handle design also help increase overall feel through the rod and provide accuracy. Exceptional flats fly fishing rods. Echo Prime 2 piece fly rod models feature a Recoil guide upgrade.
If you ask around, the ideal saltwater rod is one that will help you hit your target with the minimum number of false casts. When targeting flats fish, things happen quickly and usually in the 40 to 60 foot “kill zone.” Everything about an ECHO PRIME rod has been optimized to help you succeed in the zone.
Its easy-loading tip section and condensed 8’10” length set it up to cycle through the cast quicker with less effort. Modest power levels enhance feel during the cast but don’t give out on long shots. From the lightweight guides at the tip of the rod, to the multi-zone handle shape, to the no pinch point fighting butt, every inch of the rods has been engineered to help you get the fly to the target and help you when you get the grab.
Four piece rods are available from an 8wt to 12wt. Two piece rods have the same action as their four piece cousins and are available in 8, 10, and 11 wt. models. These stealthy rods are our most all-around capable saltwater rod Echo has ever designed.
