ECHO SR (Switch Rod)



This product will be handled and shipped directly from ECHO.



Whether you’re using them with one hand or two, spey casting or overhead casting, the ECHO SR (switch rod) series are quick, yet built to maintain the load during all styles of spey casting.

The ECHO SR is a serious weapon, ideal for chasing everything from steelhead to smallies. Great Lakes fly anglers love the light weight and shorter length, Pacific Northwest anglers like the ability to fish in tight places with two hands. Staying true to the accepted sub-11’ switch lengths, they are perfect two hand length but are not beyond chucking with one hand when needed.

Above all, fast actions and versatile sizes make the SR series the best stick for two-handed bug slingers that prefer a shorter rod, while slick cosmetics and bombproof components help solidify the SR as the fishiest switch rod on the water.

ECHO Rod & Reel Maintenance

ECHO recommends the following regular reel 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.

ECHO Action vs. Power Comparison

Action vs Power Comparison

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, two-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.
