    The new ECHO ION reels are the best reel we have ever seen in the sub $100 category. Made from what we call a hybrid design, cast aluminum and then machined to provide the benefits of a machined bar stock reel without the high price associated with fully machined reels. All ECHO die cast reels are collated with an impact resistant matte black finish to provide the best looking, long lasting finish. Four sizes to fit any rod, starting with the 4/5 and the 6/7 for smaller rod applications and finishing with the 8/10 and 10/12 that will hold the largest single hand or two-handed lines with plenty of backing. ECHO ION reels have stainless steel internal components and are primarily designed for fresh water use. They can be used in the salt providing extra care is taken to clean and lubricate them after each day on the water.

    Reviewer: Michael F. Jr (Saint Paul, MN)

    Well, as an ex Lamson and Hardy devotee I do have to say that this reel is very smooth and well made. Time will ultimately tell, but it balanced well with a 10' 8wt rod. I'm happy with it, and judging from who chairs Echo, I am confident that I chose well to use this reel!

    Reviewer: Joel Selman (Southfield, MI)

    In the last review the writer was concerned about losing the spool retainer (part #24) knob when changing spools. I called the manufacturer and was told you need only loosen the knob to remove the spool, not remove it. I tested this out and feel way more comfortable about changing spools while on the river.

    I'm enjoying the Echo Ion fly reels. For the price they're a very fine piece of equipment. I like how they feel and preform. If I need another reel this will be among my top choices, great value for the price. The only beef I have is how the spools change. I can see if your not careful when changing spools while in the water one could easily lose the locking nut. It would probably be best to exit the water when changing spools.
