Echo Ion Fly Reel
The ECHO ION reels are the best reel we have ever seen in the sub $100 category. Made from what we call a hybrid design, cast aluminum and then machined to provide the benefits of a machined bar stock reel without the high price associated with "fully" machined reels. All ECHO die cast reels are collated with an impact resistant matte black finish to provide the best looking, long lasting finish. Six sizes to fit any rod starting with the 2/3 and finishing with the 10/12 that will hold the largest single hand or two-handed lines with plenty of backing. ECHO ION reels have stainless steel internal components and are primarily designed for fresh water use. They can be used in the salt providing extra care is taken to clean and lubricate them after each day on the water.
For the three larger reels we offer an optional heavier drag knob made from solid brass. This knob (sold separately) adds 2.3 oz to the reel weight, helping the reel balance with the longest two-hand rods.
