With models ranging from #3 to #8 wt, 10′ 6″ to 10′ 10″ the ECHO SR Rods have a perfect two hand length, but they are not beyond chucking with one hand when needed.
The ECHO SR is a multi functional switch rod that is perfect for the angler who is looking for the fun and two hand capability of a Spey rod, yet the versatility and functionality of a single-hand rod.
Relatively fast actions and versatile sizes make the ECHO SR series the ideal choice for two-handed fly casters that prefer a shorter rod.The #3-5 models are ideal for trout everywhere and the #6-8 handle larger migratory fish with authority. Good cosmetics and solid components help make the SR one of the fishiest switch rods on the water.

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.
