I haven’t fished with it yet but the reel is nice and smooth when practicing my cast. Getting into fly fishing and didn’t want to go overboard, yet, with higher dollar reels. This reel is a bargain. My research indicates that it is a good buy. A friend who is seriously into fly fishing also recommended it, as well.
Bottom line, it’s a great choice!

Great reel. Holds a lot of line. Use mine for bass fishing the rivers of Ohio. Doesn't scratch easy

I bought this reel to pair with my new echo 7 weight rod and was impressed. The drag is easy to adjust and it is easy to take off the spool. You can easily do it all with one hand. The drag was surprisingly strong when stripping with my hand to test. I couldn't pull it when I cranked it down. It's also attractive with the red drag and seems completely sealed as states. Noticeably lighter than my Redington Behemoth and drag seems just as strong. Wish I would have bought this first for my 7 and 9 to save money. I will say this has smaller handle and drag knob than the Behemoth.
Echo impresses again. Comes in a cool case with a bottle opener.

I bought this reel b/c I own other Echo products and they always perform well. I was looking for a quality reel at a reasonable price and this one fit the bill. I plan to use it for salmon fishing in the Pacific NW. Can't wait to get on the water! I feel certain this reel will hold up like my other Echo fly fishing gear.

Great, dependable large fresh and saltwater reel. Drag system and backing capacity are best in class.

Second Bravo reel that I purchased from your shop. Can't get enough off a good piece of equipment from Echo. Your shop makes it easy to buy quality gear. Thanks again.

Just received this Echo reel from your shop. As always, great service. Really like this reel for the salt. Echo products are very good fly fishing gear for the price. Never had a problem with Echo gear. This is my third Bravo reel and really a great product. Mr. Rajeff never lets me down. The addition of the 30 lb. backing with the reel was a very nice perk. Thank you, guys.
