ECHO ION XL 790 FLY ROD : 7WT, 9'0"
The Echo Ion XL 9'0", 7wt fly rod 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 790XL is a powerful, fast-action rod that will launch streamers and bass bugs through the wind, straight to their target. This 7wt is well suited 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 case۪. 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 at a very modest price, the Echo Ion XL was made for you!
