    ECHO ION XL 6100 FLY ROD : 6WT, 10'0"

    The Echo Ion XL 6wt,10'0" fly rod is the perfect choice as a streamer rod for trout and as an all-purpose smallmouth bass rod. The Ion 6100XL is a powerful, fast action rod that will launch streamers to that cut in the bank at 70ft and will throw bass bugs with authority in the wind. This 6wt is the perfect choice to cover the broadest range of species including larger trout, smallmouth bass, and largemouth bass. The additional length is ideal for larger rivers and lakes and fishing from a boat or kayak. 

    Casting large flies into a stiff breeze is best done with high line speed and tight loops. Fighting big fish often requires rods with a stiff backbone. Creating a rod that can do both well without causing undue hand and arm fatigue is no easy task. Generating high line speed without fatigue was the design goal for the Echo Ion XL series of rods. If you plan to cast all day and still have enough strength to drive home you need a rod with just enough power to get the fly to the fish and a little extra power in reserve ‰۷just in case‰۪. The Ion XL rods are the toughest, strongest rods Echo has ever produced and will take anything you can throw at them. You might be tempted to buy the Echo Ion XL because of its cool matte stealth grey blank, but we think you should buy one because of its perfect blend of action and power.

    Echo is legendary for building exceptional, high-performance rods that rival the best rods on the market, at a much lower price. The Echo Ion XL fly rods are definitely a best performance value. If you are looking for a powerful fast-action rod that won‰۪t break the bank, this Echo Ion XL was made for you!

    Echo Ion 10' 6 wt. fly rod
    Larry (Northern California) | November 4th, 2023
    Love Ion rods. Great rod for the surf here in Northern California to chase surf perch. Was using the 10' 7wt but a bit overpowered for perch. Thanks, guys.

    Great 6wt. Love the extra length on bigger rivers and surf
    Steve (California) | July 1st, 2021
    This is a great 6wt. It has quickly become my favorite of my 6's. Not many 6wts have a fighting butt, I was looking for that as I fish the surf a lot, and want it just in case I do hook something big, to give me some extra fighting power. It also handled big flies on the larger Montana rivers with no problem. It stays together on longer casts and doesn't wimp out when you need that extra distance. Overall this is a winner, especially for the price. Thank you Echo.

    I recently bought this rod for Great Lakes steelhead. It is a lot of fun to fish with. Has plenty of power. I like the dots to line up the sections.

    Nice rod at a great price
    Aaron (Erie, PA) | April 28th, 2019
    I originally had the Echo Ion XL 10' 8wt to fish at Oak Orchard in NY for steelhead, browns, and salmon. I was so happy with it that I purchased the 10' 6wt for Lake Erie steelhead. It's a good rod as a great price. Echo also has a great warranty and customer service.
