Anyone who's ever fished with me will say that you'd have to pry my 5 weight Echo Glass from my cold, dead hands, just to get me to fish a different fly rod. Except for when I'm chucking streamers for big game, I will fish that glass rod for just about everything! Which is why I'm so excited by the arrival in the shop this week of Echo's newest glass rod: The Bad Ass Glass.
"The Bad Ass Glass was designed to tackle the last fiberglass frontier: big water and big fish". New for 2017, the folks at Echo have really outdone themselves with this rod. Saltwater safe and featuring a gorgeous sea blue blank, the Bad Ass Glass comes in 8, 9, 10 and 12 weights and features a glass fast action. Tim Rajeff shows us just how amazing the Bad Ass Glass is here:
