Opinions on 6 wt rods?
Currently own a 5 wt, but looking to grab a 6 wt for a river a fish that is known for its wind. a 7 wt wouldn't be out of the picture either. I would be throwing heavy 2 nymph rigs with an indicator and weight, and possibly some larger streamers. Very tight budget right now, and I am slowly saving money up. I am hoping to spend 200 or less. I have been looking pretty close at the Echo Carbon. and even though it is a little over my budget, I have also been checking out the Allen Xa, because they offer it in a 10' model. I haven't been able to find many 10' rods in this price range, but a 9' would be just fine. Anybody have any experience with these two rods? Would also buy a used one if they price and condition were right. Any opinions wanted.
