Echo Has The Right Model For Any Budget Or Desire

ECHO Rods: No matter what the criteria for choosing your next fl y rod; action, power, length, cast-ability, cosmetics, or price, Echo has the right model
for any budget or desire. This review focuses on two of the most popular rods in the Echo line. The Echo Solo is the best One-Hundred dollar fl y rod on the market, bar none. Classy looks and steady casting performance make the Solo hard to walk away from. A beautiful gloss brown blank and premium anodized components wrapped around a forgiving Medium Fast action blank will help every new fly angler get the feel for a sport that will stay with them for a lifetime. So, whether choosing your fi rst fl y rod, or picking up that solid back up rod for a special trip. Look no further, the Echo Solo has a spot in every angler’s arsenal. Now available in 4 piece.

Echo’s Carbon Series rods are considered one of the best “deals” in the world of fly fishing, providing ultra-smooth casting along with bullet proof durability. The medium-fast action is not too stiff and not too soft. These four piece rods feature half-wells cork handles with composite pressure zones and unique anodized-aluminum cutaway reel seats. The fi nish is matte brown with alignment dots for easy assembly and a 20” fish hero mark.
Each Echo rod comes with a Cordura nylon-covered rod tube and a lifetime warranty.


The All New ANARCHY Bow from Bear Archery

Faster Speeds, Smoother Draw And Release And More Solid Wall

Nobody knows what you want better than you. That’s why, at the start of every bow design, Bear listens to their customers. The Anarchy Bow is their answer with a more forgiving, longer axle-to-axle bow that is more durable yet still lightweight. The Anarchy feels like no other from draw to release. With Bear’s all-new Flat Top Cam, the Anarchy offers a smooth draw and release.  Their Max Pre-load Quad Limbs are steady during draw and provide a silent, stable, vibration-free source of undeniable Bear power at release. Bear’s Dual Arc Offset String Suppressors have been keeping Bear bows shock-free and silent at release since 2008.
