    ECHO ION 2/3 FLY REEL : 2-3WT


    The Echo Ion 2/3 Fly Reel is the perfect addition to any 2-3wt trout fly rod. A beefy drag that is smooth and reliable, the ECHO Ion Fly Reels merge performance with affordability.


    The Echo Ion reels are some of the best reel we've ever seen in the sub $100 category. They're made from what we call a "hybrid" design, cast in aluminum and then machined to provide the benefits of a machined bar stock reel without the high price associated with "fully" machined reels. Then coated with an impact-resistant, matte black finish to provide the best-looking, longest-lasting finish. Six sizes to fit any rod, starting with the 2/3 and finishing with the 10/12, which will pair easily with the largest single-hand or two-handed lines and plenty of backing. Echo Ion reels have stainless steel internal components and are primarily designed for fresh water use. They are not designed for, but can handle some exposure to salt providing extra care is taken to clean and lubricate them after each day on the water. At $79.95 retail for the three smaller reels and $99.99 for the three larger sizes, the Ion reels are a "no brainer."

    Bought this reel to keep my "budget" small stream outfit on track. Plenty happy with it. Holds line, drag works, operates as intended. This is my 2nd Ion, I have another Ion on a 6wt. Possibly grabbing a 3rd one here before too long.

    Solid build, but a bit heavy

    I recently purchased this reel as a replacement for my old Echo Base reel. The reel is solidly built, has a smooth drag and structurally appears to be a significant upgrade over the cheaper Base model. It comes in a bit heavier than anticipated, however. Though, it is hard to complain given the price point. I'll be sure to add more once I've put a few fish on it.

    Great lightweight pairing with Echo Lift 376-4 fly rod. I put a 13” brown trout on the reel just to test out the drag and it worked flawlessly. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quality reel at a reasonable price.

    Like the reel. Everything clicks, drag, wind and drag knob.

    This reel is not bad. It feels pretty nice in the hand and has a well adjustable drag for a 2/3. My only real issue with it is the tolerance between the spool and frame. Right out of the box I noticed a pretty good sized gap. Decided to fish it for the summer anyways, but I found my line slipping through that gap quite frequently. Can be a fairly frustrating issue especially when there is a fish involved. If it wasn't for that little extra gap it would get 5 stars.

    I couldn’t ask for a better reel for small bass and panfish. Used on both 6’6” and 7’9” 3 weight rods, these reels do their job quietly and efficiently. Great buys!

    purchase for a backup reel recently but after a days use it will be my primary reel now on my favorite 3wt rod. Really like the drag in this easy to fine tune it as needed. Excellent value for the price for a large arbor reel.

    Great little reel. Balances perfectly on the Shadow II rod I ordered with it. The guys at ReelFly took care of me when they realized the line I ordered was out of stock. They were able to make an adjustment and still get my outfit shipped to my door within two days! Got themselves a future repeat customer for sure!
