The Echo SR Switch is a visually attractive rod of good quality and warranty. I’ve considered this rod it was a bit too soft for what I was looking for.

It may suit your casting style perfectly, only you would know.

My spey is a softer rod my switch is as fast as I could find.

Only you know, but there’s nothing wrong with that rod.

To me all of the Echo line is slower than described, barring the Echo 3.

Good luck!

I have the SR 6 wt 10 ft. 10 in. I don't find it slow with a well matched short skagit, Rio Scandi body or Switch Chucker, but we ain't all the same. I've used it extensively overhead casting sinking lines and launching bobber rigs at Pyramid lake so it's been pummeled. It is a durable work horse but it's heavy and the cork has a bunch of filler. But at it's price point pretty hard to beat.

Thay are OK but I would suggest to wait for new TFO Dear Creek. I hope DC will be nice(er?)

My opinion is similar to Steve's. Echo rods are nice for the money. And everyone I ever touched is slower than advertised compared to competitors with same rating. That may or may not be what you desire.

I am considering currently ECHO SR II 8 wt rod for the seatrout fishing. Is there anyone who have experience with the second generation of the rod? How that rod is casting? Is it really fast action or it have some deeper flex?

I am also curious how are looking walls of the blank. Are they paper thick or there is some meat ?
