ECHO RIVER GLASS
Anglers fish glass for a long list of reasons. At the top of the list are more easily feeling the rod load and the superior shock absorption of glass fibres. For 2019, Tim Rajeff compiled his years of fibreglass experience in to the new ECHO River Glass series, offered in lengths to cover the widest variety of freshwater fisheries. The rods are available in either Glacier or Amber colour to help add a bit more smile that wasn’t there when you fished your stiffer graphite rods.
The #2 and #3 weight River Glass are three piece rods. The #4 and #5 weight rods have four sections.
NB: All River Glass rods are hand-built, including the paint colour. Due to the nature of painted translucent finishes, there may be colour variances throughout the rod. But look at this way: each rod is its own unique piece of art!

Action vs Power Comparison - Single Hand
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.
