ECHO EPR 690 FLY ROD : 9'0", 6WT
The Echo EPR 690 Fly Rod is faster and more powerful than just about any high-end 6wt rod, and at about half the price. This EPR 6wt rod is perfect for chasing larger browns, bows, or smallmouth on the rivers. The EPR-690 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 6wt will punch streamer flies through the wind and throws bulky deer hair bass bugs 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/freshwater 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 fastest-action, most powerful 8wt rods on the market at any price.
