The ECHO Shadow X is built for serious competitive anglers who demand a rod that is both versatile and efficient. In competition, every cast, every drift, every motion-they all count. The Shadow X is a hybrid design that delivers pin-point accurate casts with Euro Nymph rigs, then will pick up and deliver longer casts so you don’t need to carry two rods to be competitive. The medium-fast action blank is also the lightest we have ever created. It’s like a Formula One car with enough cargo space to take the kids and your dog to soccer practice.
