Default Custom Echo!

i just got my Echo Glass 4wt back for Woronoco Flyrods! this rod has been my favorite for awhile but i hated the grip, as it was covered in tons of filler that fell out. Echo was very willing to make it right but i figured.....why not get the exact seat and grip i want so off it went and this is what returned saturday

I have quite a collection of glass 4wts and this is my favorite by far! Next in line would be my 7' Kettle Creek blank but its fast glass. The Echo is nice and smooth...very similiar to the old Phillipsons

Well done. So for roughly $300+ you got a dream rod that looks like $ 500-600 custom built. Very nice as the closest custom Steffen is more and as wonderful those tapers are the finish on your rod is much nicer. Thanks for sharing
