Large arbor spool design for fast line pickup and low line memory
With a large arbor for quick retrieves and a hybrid machined/cast design, the Ion is a great choice for balancing single-hand and two-hand rods of all sizes. Designed primarily for freshwater use, they can be used in the salt with a little additional care. Six sizes make sure that there is an Ion reel to suit your fishing situation. An optional solid brass drag knob helps balance even the longest spey rods.
The echo 6/7 wt reel is about 1 1/2 ounces too light to properly balance my echo ion 6 wt 10’ rod
A great quality reel for the price. And thank you for the service in putting the line I ordered with backing on the reel. Good job!
