    ECHO BASE 790 FLY ROD : 7WT, 9'0"


    Echo Base Fly Rods are an amazing value and very nice casting rods. The Echo Base 790 is a smooth casting, powerful, medium-fast action fly rod that is perfect for targeting largemouth bass, streamer fishing big browns, and swinging flies to steelhead. This Base 790 also excels in saltwater situations for bonefish, redfish, jacks, bluefish, false albacore, or whatever happens to cruise by. The Base 7wt rod will effortlessly launch streamers to that cut in the bank, throw bass bugs straight to their target, and deliver saltwater flies long distance in the wind. This versatile 7wt performs well in virtually any situation for smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, carp, steelhead, bonefish, and redifish and is ideal for newer anglers or those on a smaller budget.

    The Echo Base fly rods incorporate the latest graphite materials and technologies, creating a rod series that helps beginners throw tight loops like a pro. Whether you're newer to the sport, or looking for a solid back-up rod, the Echo Base offers quality and performance for a very modest price.


    Echo is legendary for building exceptional, high-performance rods that rival the best rods on the market, at a much lower price. The Echo Base fly rods are definitely a best performance value. If you are looking for a smooth, crisp, medium-fast action rod with great line feel, the Echo Base is the rod for you.

    I was really impressed with everything about this rod. The case is nice and labeled, has nice guides, the blue blank is absolutely stunning, and the white alignment dots make it easy to put together. It's got a light feel for a 7 weight and a comfortable stroke after practicing in the yard. Definitely slower than my ION XL. Yet again, another winner from Echo. And the price, is very impressive. I expected a lot from reviews and it still exceeded my expectations.

    I recently purchased this reel for steelheading on smaller streams. Some fish have really put this reel to the test and it still casts as good as new.

    I recently purchased this 7wt as an emergency backup after breaking the tip on my 10' 7 wt ION XL. Due to COVID closures, I was not able to reach Echo's warranty department and needed a rod for an upcoming tournament. While I'm a huge fan of the 3 wt base I purchased last year, the 7 wt Base leaves much to be desired after fishing the ION XL. It'll get the job done, but simply doesn't have the distance or feel of the slightly more expensive model. If you're just beginning, this rod will do well for you. Though, be warned you may outgrow it somewhat quickly. Still, for the price it is hard to beat as a backup rod.

    I'm a fan of Echo products and that's why I purchased this 7 wt Echo fly rod. I've owned several Echo rods and have enjoyed them very much. I'm happy to be adding a 7 wt to my bag of tricks. This rod is very nice looking and is balance well. I'm looking forward to fishing with it.

    Rod came packed well and from all appearances is a quality product. It may be a while before I can test it on the water but it looks and feels like a winner.

    This line is with the price and works really well for the beginner. It has matched well with the line and reel I purchased. A pleasure to cast all day.

    What a bargain! Casts like it costs 10 times as much. Great for a beginner or a veteran fly fisher.

    Doesn't look or cast like a $100 fly rod. It is a very solid performer.

    This is a great rod. Don't let the price influence you into thinking it can't be good. This is a fun rod to fish the surf/bay. It is smooth, and has some reserve power as well. It is a crisp medium fast action, more towards the faster end than the medium end. The fit and finish is fine (certainly better than any other $100 rods I've seen), and this 7wt has no problem with throwing a weighted fly on my RIO In-touch full sink line in the surf. I will be picking up other Echo rods as well for other fly fishing adventures in the future.
