NEW! BRAVO LT 8/10 FLY REEL : 8-10WT
Echo Bravo Lite Fly Reels are built around a proven carbon stacked disc drag system. Then Echo cut, shaved, and overhauled the core of the reel until they could shoehorn a robust four-layer carbon fiber disc drag system in the hub of the reel. The Echo Bravo LT 8/10 Reel is the perfect choice for any 8, 9 or 10wt rod targeting larger bass, salmon, bonefish, permit, and general saltwater fishing.
This new design includes sealed O-rings to keep water and dirt from entering the guts of the reel, for smooth, reliable performance. The design allows a person to not only change the retrieve from left to right without tools, but also completely disassemble the drag and service it and put it back together quickly. This is a great new Echo reel for the money!
- All-new 4 Carbon Disc Drag System
- Premium roller clutch bearing system for a smooth, instantly-engaged drag
- Large arbor design for faster line pickup
- Durable, solid aluminum alloy construction
- Incoming/outgoing audible click
- Easily convertible from left to right hand retrieve
- Sealed to protect against damaging elements

I use this reel for salmon on the Kenai and other Alaskan river systems. Targeting mainly averaged size Coho and occasional Sockeye or Pink. These fish can be real punishing on a drag. If you foul hook one or two, most fly reel drags at this price are soon rendered useless. The smooth, sealed carbon disc is what attracted me to the Bravo. Im very pleased with its performance after battling a few back to back. My only complaint is I have to really crank the drag on the tight side to keep it performing under what I would consider Normal conditions(others using my rod also verified), anything a-little abnormal and i'm forced to use my hand. After landing the fish I then have to reverse the process to let out line. For the price tho, i'm happy.
Using with a Lamiglas G129810 9ft #10 rod.

At this price I expected a cheap plastic reel with poor balancing.
I'm very surprised at how sturdy this is and how well balanced it feels on my 8W rod.
The drag is smooth and I don't notice any issues with the finish or any rattling in it's gear housing.
Overall I was really surprised because the cheap knockoff brands are right in this price range as well.
