The Echo Carbon 5 weight rods are fantastic. The Carbon is smooth, throws a nice line, and roll casts very well. It is powerful, but it is an all-around rod that is just as comfortable delivering a dry fly delicately as it is hucking a bead and split shot. Rod has a lifetime guarentee.
The reel is an Echo Ion outfitted with the Airflo Velocity weight forward floating fly line. The Ion reel is the best we have seen under $100. It is a hybrid reel: a cast aluminum reel that is then machined. It features a powerful and easily adjustable disc drag.
Comes with a Cordura-covered PVC Rod Case, backing, weight forward floating line, and tapered leader.
