The blank is a glossy dark gray, The only-foot guides are wrapped with charcoal gray thread and silver trim. The reel seat is carbon fiber, and the skeleton is nickel. What does this all mean?!? It signifies that your pals we be green with envy long before you are taking it apart and effortlessly slide it into your gear bag. The rod is available in a corduroy sock and a sturdy cordura case.

The rod & sock is available in at 6.8oz, and the rod by myself weighs 4.12oz. It?s just a little heavy, but that incorporates the entire ferrules and making it extremely durable.

It has a medium fast action. The rod is designed to throw medium to very large flies. Warranty: Rajeff Sports warrants each ECHO rod for the lifetime of the unique owner.
