Default Echo 3 switch VS Scott L2H switch

These two rods are about the same price. Echo 3 marks the high end for Echo, while the L2H is a "mid-priced" rod for Scott. Any feedback on these? How is the build quality, how do they perform? I'm looking at the 6 weight specifically for nymphing and trout streamers.

Hi John,

I have no experience with either of those models so I have nothing first hand to offer you. What species are you targeting?

I picked up a TCX switch on closeout and love it, they may be worth consideration given the price.

I own two L2S Scotts, predecessors of the L2H. The finish and fit of these rods makes me think I paid a lot more for them than I did. I have owned many Scott rods and have never been disappointed in any of them. For me, there is no contest between the two, Scott all the way and made in USA.

I'd use the 6 weight switch for nymph rigs and large streamers for trout, smallmouth and possibly light steelhead use.

I'd also likely use Rio switch chucker line.
