To optimize casting while sitting, you want a rod that is light in the hand and as long as possible. A longer rod helps you keep your back cast off the water and helps you roll cast your line to the surface prior to making your next cast. Long rods help you when fishing long leaders and tippets even when fishing a nymph and indicator.
We chose to make the rods 10 feet long which is the perfect balance between easy casting and maximum line speed. Because a full day on the water can mean thousands of casts the weight of the rod is a factor. We selected a blend of intermediate modulus graphite for the LAGO rods to help make them tough a forgiving when landing big fish while still keeping them light in the hand. Their modest tip power and a firm lower half allow a rod to perform using a wide range casting styles. ECHO LAGO rods are 10'0 long and are bathed in gloss flash cobalt finish and are four piece for easy travel.It features a low maintenance anodized reel seat and the full wells handle has a modest curve to allow different grips while casting. It comes in sizes to cover all trout lake fishing situations. Tube : Includes rod case & sock. Guides : Lightweight ceramic stripping guides.
