I have an echo 2 in a 6 wt...undoubtably one of my favorite rods to cast. I regret not buying it in a 7 or 8 since the 6 is a little light for my primary quarry. I have not tried an ion, but have a 6 wt ion I just picked up and will try it soon. The echo 2 is a flat out sweet rod though.

I own a couple Ions in 6 and 7 wts. I think they are sexy looking rods and for the price they are real hard to beat.

My only complaint with them is they are pretty heavy. I have no experience with the Echo 2. I did just pick up an Echo 3. Still in the judging phase.

My one comment is dont buy anything without testing it. You wouldn't buy a car with out test driving it. No matter what anyone says. You are the only one that matters and only you can decide if you like it. Find a way to cast the rod, or go to a local shop and throw what they have. Better to get a rod you like than risk buying one you think you will.
