    ECHO ION 6/7 FLY REEL : 6-7WT

     

    The Echo Ion 6/7 Fly Reel is the perfect addition to any 6-7 weight 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."

    I decided to go with the matching reel over the other ones offered in a package deal. I have no regrets and like the way it has performed so far. I do not get to use the drag much but it works as it should. Quality is so much better than the cheaper versions. Next purchase will be an extra spool for some sinking line. I also like that it is 6/7 because I am thinking of getting a 7 wt rod as well.

    I just bought a TFO Pro II 7wt from reelflyrod and needed to match it with a reel. Ive owned an Echo fly rod and liked it very much so I decided to give this reel a chance. Turns out its a perfect match for the TFO. First off it came with 20 yards of backing already spooled up free of charge! That saved me a good 9 bucks. The reel isnt as heavy as I anticipated and has a nice smooth drag. First day out it handled some pretty big hybrid wipers with ease. I was worried about the size of this hoping it wasnt too big for the freshwater bass I chase but its the right size. I reckon the 7/8 would be more appropriate for saltwater use. The only con is the plastic nut that holds the reel on but it seems like its the only shortcut they took on this reel. An excellent budget reel thats the one to get if its in the price range you are looking at.
