Gents, I've been reading and sometimes posting here, and I believe I've settled on an Echo rod for my next purchase, but would like your thoughts on my choices. I've got the Dec Hogan II in their 6.5 weight application, or the E3 in a 6-wt application. The rod will be used primarily on the Methow and the Wenatchee, as you know. I'm leaning toward the 6.5 simply because it would be fun to truck over to the Duc with it for Summer runs rather than throw the 8. I'd appreciate your thoughts on my choices!
