Casting big flies into freshwater rivers with trophy fish, hitting a salt flat at dawn, or bombing casts into the open surf, Echo’s Boost Blue Fly Rod does it all. An affordable fly rod that boasts high-quality features, the Boost Blue Fly Rod is equipped to handle most predatory fish scenarios, and with a fast action, this rod can present anything from tiny Clousers to foot-long Beast Fleyes. A 9ft rod that’s available in 6 through 12 weights, the Boost Blue series has an option for any saltwater experience, so whether you’re looking for reliability when casting to fast offshore Albies or need to add some stealth to hook Snook in the first trough, there’s a Boost Blue that can meet your demands.
Lightweight high-modulus graphite Blank - Echo made their Boost Blue collection to bridge power and accuracy into one solid line while maintaining a lightweight feel that doesn’t short you on strength. With a lightweight high-modulus graphite blank, these rods have a fast action with a flexible tip that makes for solid line speed and tight loops. Perfect for anything from inshore Crevalle to offshore Bonito, the Boost Blue is a great tool to have in your box. And sporting a nice gloss blue color, this rod will always have your mind on the salt.
Full Titanium Stripping Guides - To meet the harsh demands of most saltwater environments, Echo equips their Boost Blue family of rods with full titanium stripping guides. Excellent for shooting line, handling long fights, and maintaining resistance to rust and corrosion, the Boost Blue rods can stand up to saltwater with ease.
Black anodized aluminum reel seat - Echo’s Boost Blue rods are made with a black anodized aluminum reel seat. This provides strength and reliability while preventing rust and corrosion, which makes it a great rod for saltwater situations. And with a dual-uplocking design, you can count on the Boost Blue series to hold its own on those long battles with pelagic or inshore fish.
Fabric-covered square rod tube and sock - An excellent and convenient addition for the traveling saltwater angler, Echo’s Boost Blue collection comes with a square fabric-covered rod tube and sock. Perfect for travel or throwing into the back of your vehicle, the square tube is strong and prevents your rod from rolling around like the more conventional round tubes.
As of January 2021, Echo honors a warranty service to the original owner of any of their fly rods that lasts the natural life of each rod. Echo will cover both manufacturer defects and poor workmanship, and if your rod breaks due to neglect, then a service fee will be charged (fees vary depending on specific rod models); if after inspection of the rod Echo finds that it was broken due to poor workmanship or materials, Echo will waive the service fee. Once Echo receives your fly rod, their warranty process typically takes between 1 and 2 weeks.
