NEW! ECHO SHADOW X 3100-4 FLY ROD : 3WT, 10'0"
Nymphing fly rods featuring sensitive tips and longer tapers are growing in popularity for trout anglers worldwide. Tim Rajeff and the Echo crew were on the forefront of this movement with the production of the Shadow nymphing rods. After two generations, the Echo crew decided to build the best nymphing rod they could and keep it affordable to any angler. Working with veteran Euro Nymph guru Pete Erickson, 2018 fly fishing world champion Norm Maktima, and expert Mariusz Wrobewski, the Shadow X was designed and tested.
By using the most advanced high modulus graphite available to Echo, they were able to achieve the lightest rod they have ever produced. When you need to feel every nuance happening under the water, having the lightest, most sensitive rod you possibly can is the difference between 1st and 10th place. The 3wt 10'0" is the most popular rod of this series. Perfect for most rivers and creeks where tight lining, or nymph roll casting is critical to success. When compared to other nymphing rods on the market, you will not find a lighter or a more tip sensitive rod to feel all the takes. The perfect rod to outfit with the newer Euro Nymphing Lines.

I fished the Shadow X3100 with Rio Elite sinking tip wt3 in Ausable River near Keene Valley NY for 4 days 2 weeks before Christmas. the combo was well balanced and the line performed well with temps in low 40's for highs and low 30's for lows. Fishing was slow with small #20 nymphs but was able to land and release 2 browns. The rod paired with Ross Evolution combo performed well under difficult conditions. The Echo Shadow X 3100 is the best nymphing rod that I have ever fished.

Great for euro nymphing and paired with SA Infinity, it makes a great dry fly rod as well.

The Shadow X is truly the finest Euro rod I have fished. The adjustable weights, low swing weight and perfect action make it a really wonderful rod. I have become an Echo fan in the last 2 years from their great products and this is one of them. Its alot of money, but it does compete with the high end rods. Plus, Echo's warrant and tip replacement is awesome! Buy one!
