Echo’s mid-priced Euro Nymph offering is practical and affordable. The Carbon XL Euro Nymph Series includes two rod models with serious nymphing capabilities. Standard modulus graphite minimizes cost to keep these entry-level Euro Nymph rods affordable for all anglers without sacrificing important performance features. Echo now has a few different Euro Nymphing rods and they’ve clearly done their research on what makes a good one.
Standard Modulus Graphite Design - Affordability and performance were the two major focuses when Rajeff Sports designed the blank for the Carbon XL Euro Nymph series. By utilizing standard modulus graphite, Echo has kept the price of the Carbon XL Euro Nymph affordable while encouraging functionality and practical performance. The blank has a light tip and a powerful butt section for added rod versatility.
Lightweight Ceramic Stripping Guide - Euro Nymphing rods are designed to be lightweight. A ceramic stripping guide fits the Carbon XL Euro Nymph rod well and decreases overall rod weight without sacrificing functionality.
Single Foot Guides - Similarly, single foot guides help eliminate unneeded weight from the Carbon XL Euro Rod. These guides offer industry-accepted performance and functional style.
Carbon Fiber w/Uplocking Component - The reel seat on the Carbon XL Euro Nymph is lightweight and durable. Carbon fiber is a great mid-priced alternative to anodized aluminum and keeps the Carbon XL lightweight and affordable. A single uplocking component holds any Euro Nymphing reel in place.
Durable Rod Case - The Carbon XL comes in a durable fabric-covered rod case with an Echo insignia. This case will protect the Carbon XL during time off the water.
Echo Fly Rod Lifetime Warranty - Echo will repair or replace any defective or damaged rods for the entire lifetime of the original owner. All rods must be sent to Echo for repairs/service. As of 4/17/2019, Echo charges a $35 fee for fly rod repairs/replacements.
