Echo Ion Reels

Echo

 

Echo's Ion fly reel is a solid reel at an excellent price for fly fishing enthusiasts that are new or are simply looking for a quality reel for an affordable price.  The Echo Ion fly reels feature cast metal construction and a large arbor design for fast line retrieval and low line memory.  Echo Ion reels have very smooth drags and a click position drag adjustment knob.  Fish the Ion reels in fresh or saltwater and they are available in larger sizes perfect for Spey rods. 

Here is what Echo has to say about their Ion reels:

With a large arbor for quick retrieves and a hybrid machined/cast design, the Ion is a great choice for balancing single-hand and two-hand rods of all sizes. Designed primarily for freshwater use, they can be used in the salt with a little additional care. Six sizes make sure that there is an Ion reel to suit your fishing situation. An optional solid brass drag knob helps balance even the longest Spey rods.
