ECHO EPR 1290 FLY ROD : 9'0", 12WT
The Echo EPR 1290 Fly Rod is faster and more powerful than just about any high-end 12wt rod, and at about half the price. This EPR 12wt rod is perfect for targeting big tarpon on windy days. The EPR-1290 has a super fast tip to load easily at short distances and the most powerful bottom sections Echo has ever made. In other words, this rod is a rocket.
The EPR 12wt will launch tarpon flies through the wind and throws large,bulky flies like a cannon straight to their target. The stiffness of this rod makes line pickup easy and excels at quick second shots. Echo is legendary for building exceptional, high-performance rods that rival the best rods on the market, at a much lower price. If you can afford a Sage Salt HD, Scott Meridian, or Orvis Helios 3, these are all superb saltwater rods. If you do not want to spend $800-$900 for a high-end salt rod, the Echo EPR shines as a best performance value for under $500. This is one of the most powerful 12wt rods on the market at any price. If you are targeting predators that weight more than you do, the EPR 12wt will tip the scales in your favor.
