ECHO COMPACT SPEY
The ECHO compact Spey series of fly rods, were developed specifically to match modern short shooting-head systems and the coinciding compact casting stroke.
ECHO COMPACT SPEY
Casting two hand setups all day can get tiring. To maximise time on the water, anglers have been turning to shorter two-hand rods to play more and work less. Using lengths previously referred to as “switch rods”, we developed true Spey actions that perfectly match up to today’s shorter head systems and compact casting techniques. If you’re needing to ease up on your casting workload or fish effectively in tight quarters, the new ECHO Compact Spey rods are here to answer the call.

Action vs Power Comparison - Spey
The Action vs. Power matrix is used for comparison between ECHO rod models. Utilizing this chart, you’ll be able to choose an ECHO rod that best fits you and your personal casting stroke. The vertical axis indicates the rod’s power, while the horizontal axis indicates the rod’s action. In simple terms, single-hand rod action is derived from the top half of the rod, while power is derived from the bottom half.
Fast action rods feature softer tips than medium action rods and provide a ‘stiffer’ feel. Fast action rods excel in the hands of anglers with more aggressive casting strokes and greater stroke control. Medium action rods are ideal for anglers with more fluid casting strokes and have a larger ‘sweet spot’ for a wider range of casting strokes. Consistently throwing a tailing loop? Your rod’s action may not be a good fit to you and your casting stroke.
A rod’s power is its resistance to flexing under load. Powerful rods are ‘beefier’ through the bottom half, generate higher line speeds, and are more adept at keeping big fish pinned. Delicate rods are more presentation-oriented, protect light tippet, and are a better choice for picky fish.
