    Default Echo Ion 6wt ?

    I am thinking about adding a 6wt with a fighting butt and was wondering does anyone have this rod and what your thoughts are. I would primarily be using it for smallmouth bass in smaller rivers.

    Thanks

    I only have the 8wt of the Echo Ion.
    Everyone has their favorite rod, I suppose. I will say I really enjoy my TFO BVK 6wt (and the 5wt too). It can do everything from crappies to carp...including smallmouth bass and trout. It has great feel, and casts like a dream.

    Dave,
    All I have in the Ion is a 9wt & it's a good rod that I find a little on the heavy side, but then it IS a 9wt. I also have an Echo Edge "84" in a 6wt. That's an 8'4" 6wt & it is an absolute rocket launcher. Probably the best casting rod I own. Try to cast both of those & decide from there. Call me if you want.

    depending on what you already have why would you need a 6wt? If I had a choice for warm water between a 6 and a 5 I'd take a 6 so I can throw poppers. Just remove the fighting butt though. So far as echo rods, ???? My 2cents.

    I already have a 6wt, but was thinking of getting another but one with a fighting butt.
