    It's hard to tell from the picture, but Marty's description looks accurate. Blackish blank (can't see the thread wraps), green graphite reel seat insert with silver hardware, and a fairly standard grip setup with reddish or burnt burl ends on each grip.

    As mentioned there has been a cosmetic change. Wraps and reel seat are going to be gray now with the rest of the rod staying the same. The production is still on schedule and we should start to see them soon. The information on the Fly Shops page is incorrect and the photos are of a prototype. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of the production rods and still think they are well worth the wait.

    I received word yesterday from a reliable source that the demos with cosmetic changes have been received and with any luck the rod will be in production soon. I personally have not seen them yet though.

    I took a quick look at them on the rack in the Echo booth at the FF show in Bellevue. Tim Rajeff said they would be in the shops in April. I did consider a career in journalism but you might want to get some confirmation on my report.

    I also talked with Tim ... same time frame given. What will make them rock is the short scandi heads they are working on. Hopefully they figure things out and the lines are available this summer. The rods load deep into the handle and I suspect will take well to underhand casting. I played with the 4 wt rod ... think I'll get one when the lines for it come out.

    Hello all

    I just ordered a Echo-Dec Hogan 12' 6" 6Wt. Per the factory the rods will be out in April 08. Looking forward to casting this rod after reading about it's performance on this and other sites.

    I called Marriott's today to check if the right rod was ordered. Inside they found a "Classic 12'6" 6wt rod, not the "Dec Hogan 12'6" 6wt" rod that I had ordered. Oh well I will have to wait till April like I was told before. False alarm

    Just got an e-mail stating the rod is now "in production" and will be "in stock" first week of May.

    Sorry, I didn't ask what year...
