Echo Classic 8/9 13ft6inch to be sold, I have too many 8/9 weights already.
Rod has no real scratches, minor cork discoloration, includes sock and case. Been used a handful of times. Rod is very easy to cast, kick ass first rod.
This rod is a perfect winter every day rod, casts mid belly 7/8 CND GPS really well, superb with Airflo Compact Skagit 570grain with tips in the 120-150grain area (11feet of -11, 13 feet of T-8 works really well also). I cast RIO
550grain oldery style skagit and it worked really well also, havent tried Flight. Personally, I dont like any of the Classics for Scandi casting, but that IMHO, I prefer a much faster rod, but RIO
AFS in 500'ish grains worked pretty well.
Price s $170, Ill ship the rod for any extra $10 (ground) for anyone not living in Portland OR area.
