The Echo Shadow X is a rod for elite-level competition euro nymph anglers.
OK, maybe that's a little intense. What we mean to say is it was designed for the top dogs of the Euro Nymph world (the varisty football team of fly fishing), but is accessible to all anglers.
Echo worked with veteran Euro Nymph guru Pete Erickson (the Payton Manning of euro nymphing), 2018 fly fishing world champion Norm Maktima (the Tom Brady of euro nymphing), and expert Mariusz Wrobewski (the Don Shula of euro nymphing) to create a rod that is dialed-in to perform at the sport’s highest levels.
By using the most advanced high modulus graphite available, Echo was able to achieve the lightest rod they have ever produced.
When you need to feel every nuance happening under the water, having the lightest, most sensitive rod you possibly can is the difference between getting into the euro nymph hall of fame and living in your mom's basement.
This is the most challenging project Echo has ever completed in the life as a rod company. Neither Echo nor the experts in the field would be satisfied without a rod that balanced a level of sensitivity not before thought possible while keeping its ability to achieve effective hook sets.
