This Ion rod excels at casting to bass, steelhead, salmon, pike/musky, stripers, juvenile tarpon, bonefish, redfish, jacks, bluefish, and anything else that swims in saltwater. The Echo Ion XL is designed for throwing tight loops and big, bulky flies in windy conditions. The Echo Ion is your workhorse go-to rod to cover a wide variety of big species and challenging situations.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 that won۪t break the bank, the Echo Ion XL was made for you!Have questions or need expert advice choosing the perfect Echo Fly Rod Combo to suit your needs?
