Echo SR Switch Rods

Echo SR Switch Rods


There is no finer switch rod for the money. The Echo SR is crisp but easy to cast, has tons of power, and is equally at home doing Skagit-style casts on the river in the morning and bombing mega overhead casts off the beach in the afternoon. Plus it is a great looking rod! You won’t be disappointed.

Double Hand/Spey Lines 390-480 grains:

Skagit Compact lines in 425gr, 450gr, 45gr.-For use with a sink tip and heavier flies (We like the 450gr for most sink tip needs, but those who like to heavily load the rod may prefer the 475gr. Advanced casters with a tight casting stroke will prefer a lighter grain head such as the 425gr.)
