Echo has created a Series of affordable Switch and Spey rods made for the two-handed enthusiast, the Echo Swing Switch and Spey Series. The Swing Series helps anglers utilize today’s two-handed fly lines to cast farther and maximize water covered with a small two-handed rod. These rods are great entry-level rods for anglers learning to Spey cast. If you’re new to Steelhead fishing or Salmon fishing, try the new Swing Series, you won’t be disappointed.
Graphite Fiber Construction - The blank of the Swing Series is responsive and caster-friendly. A medium-fast action and tough graphite fiber construction mean the Swing rods are a joy to cast and remain durable throughout seasons on the water. The Swing has a deep blue blank color and is finished with quality componentry.
SiC Stripping Guides - The Echo Swing Switch & Spey 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 Swing Switch & Spey rods. These guides stand up to abuse on and off the water.
Anodized Aluminum - The Echo Swing Spey Series has a corrosion-proof black anodized aluminum reel seat designed to protect against the elements and efficiently hold a Spey reel in place without adding extra weight to the rod. The Switch Series has a silver anodized aluminum reel seat. A double downlocking component (Switch rod models) helps balance the rod and secure large Switch reels. The Spey rods have a double uplocking component.
Fabric-Covered Rod Tube - The Echo Swing Series comes with a blue fabric-covered rod tube and rod sock to store and transport the rod safely. Echo’s rod tube is tried and true 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.
