My St Croix was an 8'6 Legend 5/6 wt, 2 piece; and I used it for Smallmouth Bass, Trout in general and at Hex time. The TFO I bought is a 9' 4 piece 6wt and is medium fast action. I used it all last summer for Smallies and Carp; I really like the way it handles. In June it will see lots of Hex time fishing.

I'm happy with my Echo. Fit and finish is pretty awesome for the price. The action is crazy fast (Ion, carbon should be slower), but it can cast well with practice.
