Serious competitive anglers demand a rod that is both versatile and efficient. In competition, every cast, every drift, every motion-they all count. The ECHO Shadow X is a hybrid design that delivers pin-point accurate casts with Euro Nymph rigs, then will pick up and deliver longer casts so you don’t need to carry two rods to be competitive. The medium-fast action blank is also the lightest we have ever created. It’s like a Formula One car with enough cargo space to take the kids and your dog to footy practice.
Why This Rod?
Four piece travel design Blank: Charcoal Grey Action: Med-Fast Tube: Fabric-covered rod case & sock Guides: SIC stripping guides and hard chrome snake guides Reel Seat: Anodized aluminium Warranty: ECHO Lifetime Warranty
For Shadow X Euro Nymph Rods, we recommend going up one line size when using lines other than the Euro Nymph line.
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.
