One-handed Spey rods are hard to get right. In the case of the Echo OHS, Rajeff Sports has succeeded in creating a rod that is versatile, efficient, and caster-friendly. The OHS is optimized for Spey casting but can also be cast overhead or as a one-handed rod with a regular fighting butt. The design of the OHS makes double hauling possible in single-hand scenarios and casting Skagit lines efficient when Spey casting makes more sense. Rajeff Sports has finally introduced a one-handed Spey Series that does it all.
Lightweight High-Modulus Blank - The blank of the OHS is designed to be lightweight and high-performing. Tim Rajeff designed these 10’ 4” rods to be optimized for Spey casting. That being said, the lightweight high-modulus blank design means overhead casting with the OHS is also easy and efficient. The blank sports a gloss emerald green color and a medium-fast action.
SiC Stripping Guides - The Echo OHS rods have two SiC stripping guides to allow line to move through the rods with ease. These guides create low friction and low resistance when casting or retrieving line to simplify an angler’s connection to the fish.
Hard Chrome Snake Guides - Hard chrome snake guides add durable functionality to the design of the Echo OHS rods. These guides stand up to abuse on and off the water.
Anodized Aluminum - The Echo OHS Series has a corrosion-proof black anodized aluminum reel seat designed to protect against the elements and efficiently hold a reel in place without adding extra weight to the rod. These rods also come with a removable standard fighting butt handle and a screw-in extended fighting butt grip attachment for easy two-handed casting.
Fabric-Covered Rod Tube - The Echo OHS comes with a black fabric-covered rod tube and rod sock to store and transport the rod safely. Echo’s rod tube is efficient and lightweight and comes with an Echo insignia and rod model label.
Echo Fly Rod Lifetime Warranty - Echo will repair or replace any defective or damaged rods for the entire lifetime of the original owner. All rods must be sent to Echo for repairs/service. As of 4/17/2019, Echo charges a $35 fee for fly rod repairs/replacements.
