Modern Spey Action in a Compact Length

With trends in modern spey lines getting increasingly compact, it was time the rods were designed with these new lines in mind.  By using our years of spey rod development experience along with the expertise of spey casting champion Mariusz Wrobewski, we produced our most advanced spey rods we have ever produced.  

Action and Length for Modern Compact Spey Lines

Spey lines have evolved since they hit the mainstream, yet the rods have remained largely the same.  So we started from scratch to find the ideal flex and length to most effectively fish today’s most popular types of compact two-hand lines.

Out Lightest, Most Advanced Two Hand Series to Date

As part of the greater family of new spey rods (Full Spey, Compact Spey, Trout Spey), these new rods are dialed for how today’s anglers fish their two hand rods.  The Compact Spey comes in a standard 12′ length in 6wt, 7wt and 8wt perfect for modern compact spey lines.

Care & Handling

We would like your ECHO experience to be a good one and we ask that you take care of your equipment with the following regular maintenance:

Wash all components with warm freshwater after each days use in saltwater. Pay extra attention to the space where the guides meet the blank and the metal parts of the reel seat. Try to keep sand and dirt out of the ferrules. Occasionally use a few drops of any reel oil or grease on the reel seat threads to keep it operating smoothly. Paraffin wax can also be used on the ferrules if needed to ensure a proper fit.

Do not use tape on your ferrules. If you do we'll come steal all your bacon.
