A fast-action, entry-level rod at a clean price.
Delivering top-notch performance at a price that won't break the bank, the Echo Boost Fly Rod is a beginner angler's dream. This fast-action rod is a joy to cast and is capable of making precise casts to hard-to-reach trout thanks to its high-modulus graphite blank. With a carbon fiber reel seat, the rod is surprisingly light in the hand, making it a great rod for both nymphing and dry fly fishing. When you do hook into a fish, the sensitivity of the rod kicks in for a fun fighting experience that will have you hooked from your first successful hook-set. The rod comes equipped with sleek, black snake guides, black wraps, and a translucent matte black finish that is nothing if not sexy.

Great rod and warranty
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Purchased as gift for a friend new to fly fishing. Great beginner rod and very pleased with the Echo warranty.
Way to go , Echo!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have a golf size gaggle/ arsenal of fly rods. Some are too expensive to leave on a truck seat (NRX, Zenith). So i say OK, here is a Boost 5 weight , 9 footer, affordable, echo durable and for the one hour at the fishing hole, not have to worry about it being jacked, kind of pole.
I tried it on the Merced River/ Yosemite Portal last weekend with a weight forward Rio line and saw the magic in me.Totally impressed with the juice and the top, tip flex they talk about. Mostly Caddis and hopper fishing but that rod can push the bugs out there nicely. The cork grip takes a bit to get used to and it has some heft to it but not out of the ordinary. Online reviews by folks in "shoot outs" missed the boat. I liked it and the price point for those impromptu outings makes me feel about having a rod that i can relax about.
