    ECHO ION 4/5 FLY REEL : 4-5WT


    The Echo Ion 4/5 Fly Reel is the perfect addition to any 4-5 weight 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."

    Awesome starting reel. I am setting p my daughter with a fly fishing set up of her own. The Echo Ion 4/5 is better than a good start for

    I am setting up my daughter with a fly fishing set up of her own. The Echo Ion 4/5 is better than a good start for the money. From the finish to the quality drag and the inexpensive extra spools, this should last her for a long time. I bought one of the first Echo reels for a back up from Tim Rahjeff years ago at a fly fishing show. There was no hesitation in buying the Ion. Thank you again RFR.

    This reel came with the Echo Base 590-4 Fly Rod Outfit : 5wt 9'0. This is my first intro to fly fishing. The reel is lightweight but very durable. So far so good.

    Great reel for the money

    Bought this reel to complete my Echo base combo on the recommendation of the Reelflyrod team. The drag worked great on the trout I landed. All of them were no match for this reel. Cast great, nice adjustable drag, & a great price! I’d say the team at Reelflyrod hit another one out of the park for me!
