Default Echo Carbon 5 wt

Has anyone owned or fished with the Echo Carbon 5 wt 9ft rod. I am wondering what you think of it. How do you like casting with it? I am new at this and this rod was recommended. Thanks, Van

I would talk to Rockhoppernc, he just bought a Echo Carbon 6wt. That would probably provide reasonable insight.
