Echo Micro Practice Rod (MPR)
The Micro Practice Rod might seem like a toy, but it is really a precisely balanced rod, line, and leader. The action of the MPR and the weight of the line are matched in order to imitate, as closely as possible, the feel of a full-size fly rod. Because the MPR is so close to casting "the real thing", the indoor skills that you acquire with the MPR will translate into better casting on the water.
The rope "flyline" provides sufficient drag on indoor rugs to practice roll casting and single hand spey casts.
- Two piece design
- Durable clear plastic case
- Eva foam handle for long life
- Tim's fundamental casting instruction pamphlet
- Precisely balanced rope and yarn
Business or pleasure? The MPR is a serious casting tool that also happens to be seriously fun to use. Tim designed the MPR to precisely imitate the casting mechanics used with a full-sized rod. Great for backyard practice and cat fishing. A spey adaptor is available separately to convert your MPR to a two-handed casting tool, while the Double Haul Kit allows you to get your hauls dialed before you hit the water.
