The ECHO PRIME is the ideal saltwater rod that will help you hit your target with the minimum number of false casts. Its purpose is to help you succeed.
ECHO’s Flagship Saltwater Rod Series
If you ask around, the ideal saltwater rod is one that will help you hit your target with the minimum number of false casts. When targeting flats fish, things happen quickly and usually in the 40 to 60 foot “kill zone.” Everything about an ECHO PRIME rod has been optimised to help you succeed in the zone.
Easy-Loading Action & Lengths for Quick Shots
Its easy-loading tip section and condensed 8’10” length set it up to cycle through the cast quicker with less effort. Modest power levels enhance feel during the cast but don’t give out on long shots. From the lightweight guides at the tip of the rod to the multi-zone handle shape, to the no pinch point fighting butt, every inch of the ECHO PRIME rods have been engineered to help you get the fly to the target and help you when you get the grab.
Available in 2pc and 4pc
The 4-piece rods are available from an 8wt to 12wt. Two-piece rods have the same action as their four-piece cousins and are available in 8, 10, and 11 wt. models. These stealthy ECHO PRIME rods are the most all-around capable saltwater rod ECHO has ever designed.
- Designed for casting “real world” distances in most saltwater environments
- Available in 2pc and 4pc models
- Improved accuracy and efficiency with the new Dual Zone handle

Action vs Power Comparison
The Action vs. Power matrix is used for the 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.
