Whether looking for your first two-hand rod or a great back-up, the ECHO Classic Two-Hand rods are the smoothest, easiest casting rods in their class. High-grade components and our Classic Deep Emerald blank color mean these rods look as good as they fish. They have a crisp action and modest power, allowing performance over the largest range of fishing conditions, using both floating and sink-tip lines. The 6- and 7-weight models are great for Summer Steelhead and Atlantic Salmon. The 8-weight is a powerful rod, great for large rivers and heavier sink-tips and longer bellied lines. We took our time on the ECHO Classic Two Hand rods because we know that if you are satisfied with your first ECHO rod, you'll think about us when you're in the market for another rod. Heck you might even tell your friends about us.
