The Echo Trout X is a rod designed from scratch with the advanced caster in mind – to maximize the rod’s wide range of optimal casting distance. If you have an aggressive casting stroke, you can use a lighter line on this rod and if you are a smooth long stroke caster you will like this rod with a heavier line.
To help the rod’s casting efficiency Echo did what they could to make the TROUT X rods light to help casting efficiency and to help protect light tippet. These rods are produced in a factory that has access to the latest and best carbon fiber material. They used lightweight guides and have done everything they can to shave weight from the rod to improve performance.
The rods are all four piece and a coated with mist green gloss finish. The matching thread color helps the rod blend into the environment and all the snake guides are chrome plated for less friction. SIC stripper guides help improve double haul efficiency and the extended half wells grip with a burl wood real seat so they are beautiful, light, and low maintenance.
