FYI Echo glass rod weights

I don't know but hadn't been able to find the weights of the two-handers on any websites. Saw today that the hard copy of the 2015 Echo catalog lists them as 3wt 5.9 oz, and 4wt 6.3 oz.

I have thought about how much they weighed in comparison to the same wt in graphite.

Thanks for sharing.

Somehow I can't wrap my head around the fact that the 4wt Glass (6.3 oz) is just a hair heavier than the 4wt SR (6.0). Innerresting.

They're all pretty light. The 13ft 8wt is 9.1 oz, 0.6 oz lighter than the Classic of the same length and line rating. Little blurry here but check em out:
