To be honest with you... at first, I was a little skeptical of these new ECHO rods. Having never seen them I decided to go ahead, get the dealership and list them on my web site without stocking them. So, I did not stock them in my shop. The ECHO rods soon became my biggest internet seller. I then assumed that they must have their act together so I ordered some to stock in my shop. The rod that I was the most interested in was the 7'6" 3wt because I love small stream fishing. When the rod came in I eagerly took it out of the tube and was amazed at the beauty of this value priced fly rod. Then... when I cast it I fell in love with it. I wanted to keep it for myself but sold it the next day. I ordered more.

Hey... I would love to sell you, or anyone else, one of my G.Loomis 7'9" 3wt GLX StreamDance at $585. The StreamDance is a true work of art and a joy to cast... but to be honest with you... this ECHO, in my opinion, performs just as well and the cosmetics are at least offering a tremendous challenge to the StreamDance. The best thing about it is that its only $129.95 including a rod tube.

If you have a local ECHO dealer, you should go try one... I'm sure you'll like it. If you prefer to get the rod from a local dealer that's certainly OK with me. I understand how important it is to support the local guys. Remember this... you get a 14-day trial period with any rod you order from The Full Creel. You can order the rod and try it for two weeks before deciding to keep it. If you decide you don't want the rod, simply return it for a complete refund including the shipping cost. What a deal!!!
