    ECHO ION XL 7100 FLY ROD : 7WT, 10'0"

    The Echo Ion XL 10'0", 7wt fly rod is is perfect for streamer fishing big browns, swinging steelhead flies, throwing poppers to hungry largemouth bass, chasing bonefish on the flats when the wind dies down, and targeting tailing redfish in the backcountry. The Ion 7100XL is a powerful, fast-action rod that will launch streamers and bass bugs through the wind with authority. The 10'0" length is ideal for fishing from a boat or kayak, and excels roll casting and mending line. This 7wt is a great choice for anglers with a quick, aggressive casting stroke and will throw tight loops long distances in windy conditions.

    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, the Echo Ion XL was made for you!

    Another quality rod from Echo!!
    Chris (Louisiana) | February 2nd, 2020
    When I decided to add a 10’ 7 wt to my arsenal this winter for targeting reds out of my kayak, I began by researching some higher priced brands. All had great reviews, but I was struggling to justify the price point for something I’d use perhaps half a dozen times a year. Then I came across a review for the Ion XL. Familiar with other Echo products I was intrigued. Especially references to the lighter weight and swing weight than the original Ion line. Given the price point, I decided to take the risk and ordered this rod. While I haven’t taken it out on the kayak yet, initial test runs have all been positive. It is in fact extremely light weight for a 10’ rod and swing weight is plenty reasonable as well. Beyond that it has enough power to cut through the wind and turn over larger bodied flies with relative ease. Add in the extra reach provided and I am extremely pleased. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a longer 7 wt. Especially if you’re on a budget.
