    Default New rods from Echo "Boost"

    Its like someone on cocaine wrote the review!

    "The deafening call for an ultra efficient rod capable of producing blistering line speed with minimal effort has been answered. Enter the ECHO BOOST. The culmination of Tim’s relentless tweaking, the BOOST is built for anglers looking for that perfect balance of power, control, and sensitivity. Crafted from premium high modulus graphite using the latest advances in rod manufacturing technology. The result: a rod that’s “scary light” in hand. With killer features like a sexy slim profile, stealthy matte finish, and all-metal reel seat, we can’t decide which is faster… the cosmetics or the action."

    An Echo Boost came last in a Yellowstone Anglers fly-rod test! Love to have read their blurb if they had won a test.

    In pursuit of fast, we reinvented slow.

    The CIRCA rod with Konnetic technology is a game changer in the slow-action style of dry fly fishing. Its hypnotically smooth slower tempo combined with crisp and precise loading and unloading of each cast results in unmatched accuracy and delicate presentations. The CIRCA is a perfect addition to your rod collection, allowing you to approach a river with stealthy, short-range accuracy.

    Not as bad - but they all do that.

    Sounds like the description of a glass fly rod, except at half the weight.

    Jaguar is owned by Tata, and they own Land Rover (let's ignore that), so it ain't all bad. Just have to buy the right Tata it seems
