GungasUncle said:Probably will go Echo again - not sure if I'll go with the Solo 2Hand, the Dec Hogan, or the Tim Rajeff model yet. I'll have to cast them to see which style I like the best. From their descriptions, the TR has a softer tip than the DH, and the Solo is a medium action rod that's right in the middle of the road. But I'm really only looking at the Echos for a Spey, I'm really quickly becoming a big Echo fan. Tim Rajeff and his crew really know their stuff.
can't go wrong with echo... great price, great warranty, great service, and local. the tr is more of a scandi rod, but can be cast water borne too with the right line. the dh loads all the way to the cork and more of a skagit rod. never cast the solo, but wiggled it, and feels a little klunkier than the tr or dh.
let me know if you want to go swing the wilson sometime with long rods... you can show me a thing or two on how to kill the skunk.
