ECHO ION XL - ROD

Saltwater-grade rods in this price category are usually better utilized as a coat hanger than a fishing tool. The Ion XL series does not fit that mold. Featuring a remarkably low swing-weight and a more forgiving action, the Ion XL is equally at home stripping flesh flies as it is dropping a merkin to a tailing permit. All models feature salt corrosion-resistant componentry.

FEATURES:
  • Four piece travel design
  • Action: Med Fast to Fast
  • Tube: Fabric-covered rod case & sock
  • Guides: Oversized stripping guides
  • Grips: Features 2 grip styles
  • Reel Seat: Wood insert seat for standard models, black anodized seat on saltwater (S) models
  • Warranty: Echo Lifetime Warrant

LAMSON LIQUID - REEL

How much of a reel at this price can LAMSON make here in the U.S.? Quite a lot as it turns out, and it's a good mix. These high quality castings are imported, but the components critical to the drag system are CNC-machined here in the U.S. Liquid reels are assembled in Boise alongside our highest priced reels. No other $100 reel can boast this much U.S. content and quality oversight. These are the ultimate low cost reel with high quality componentry.

  • Format: Large Arbor
  • Materials: Pressure Cast Aluminum Frame and Spool
  • Finish: Polyurethane Case and Spool
  • Drag: Sealed Conical Drag
