A Full-Length Fast-Action Spey Rod
Despite the trends for going shorter on all things in the two-hand world, there will always be a place for full length rods. By using our years of spey rod development experience along with the expertise of spey casting champion Mariusz Wrobewski, we produced our most advanced spey rods we have ever produced.
Action and Length for Modern Spey Lines
Spey lines have evolved since they hit the mainstream, yet the rods have remained largely the same. So we started from scratch to find the ideal flex and length to most effectively fish today’s most popular types of two-hand lines.
Out Lightest, Most Advanced Two Hand Series to Date
As part of the greater family of new spey rods (Full Spey, Compact Spey, Trout Spey), these new rods are dialed for how today’s anglers fish their two hand rods. The Full Spey comes in a standard 13′ length in 6wt, 7wt and 8wt perfect for bigger water situations.

Action vs Power Comparison
The Action vs. Power matrix is used for comparison between ECHO rod models. Utilizing this chart, you’ll be able to choose an ECHO rod that best fits you and your personal casting stroke. The vertical axis indicates the rod’s power, while the horizontal axis indicates the rod’s action. In simple terms, two-hand rod action is derived from the top half of the rod, while power is derived from the bottom half.
Fast action rods feature softer tips than medium action rods and provide a ‘stiffer’ feel. Fast action rods excel in the hands of anglers with more aggressive casting strokes and greater stroke control. Medium action rods are ideal for anglers with more fluid casting strokes and have a larger ‘sweet spot’ for a wider range of casting strokes. Consistently throwing a tailing loop? Your rod’s action may not be a good fit to you and your casting stroke.
A rod’s power is its resistance to flexing under load. Powerful rods are ‘beefier’ through the bottom half, generate higher line speeds, and are more adept at keeping big fish pinned. Delicate rods are more presentation-oriented, protect light tippet, and are a better choice for picky fish.
