ECHO ION XL STEELHEAD FLY ROD OUTFIT
Echo ION XL Fly Rod Outfits include the Echo ION XL Fly Rod, Lamson Litespeed G5 Fly Reel, RIO InTouch Steelhead Floating Fly Line, Dacron backing, tapered leader, and Echo cordura rod tube. Each complete outfit is shipped professionally loaded and ready to fish...just tie on a fly!
The Echo Ion XL fly rod is the perfect all around steelhead line. From the lightweight 6wt to the longer 7wt 10'0", the Ion Xl will have the power, finesse, and feel to target steelhead. The Ion XL is great for other freshwater species including Salmon, Larger Trout, Pike, and Musky with the 10wt. If you are looking for a specific line instead of the RIO Steelhead line, please contact our pro-staff after ordering.
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 just 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!
