Re: Echo 5wt action?
I took an Echo Classic 5 wt for a test a couple of weeks back. I found the rod easy to cast and could cast a good distance. I did find that the rod was weak at making making accurate cast. Upon further inspection I noticed that the rod does not disipate vibration as well as some more expensive rods. If you would like a moderate or a moderate fast action in a lower price range you should test out the Scott V2, TFO finnesse, Sage Launch, St. Croix Avid, Scierra IC3 or other recomendations from the Full Creel or local shops.
