Finally Tim [Rajeff] has made a true extra fast action rod for all us speed freaks, the ECHO E.P.R.
The EPR (Enhanced Performance Rod) has got that very bendy (technical term) tip that makes you in control at a short length of line or even just the leader, and then it stiffens up gradually so the butt only comes into play with lots of line out, lots of speed put in or that big mama at the end of the leader, out where flies seldom travel to.
It’s also very light in the hand, so several times I had to check if it really was recommended for that line-class (I had an #8 weight to test) or not, this gem of a rod just hits home wether on a wind infested flat looking for cruising bones at the edge of range, or throwing big bulky flashflies to the toothy critters of the Baltic.
The cosmetics aren’t to shabby either, a nice black blank and whippings trimmed with dark gold and golden writings adds to the reason it been nicknamed “The EsPResso.”
Equally perfect for the fishbum or the big city Hipster 😀
