Echo Ion/Cabela's Rls+ Fly Combo - Grey - $279.99

Pair up your Ion rod with a Cabelas RLS+ reel. Includes Prestige Plus weight-forward floating fly line (a $39.99 value) and backing. When rod designer and competitive fly-caster Tim Rajeff set about designing the Ion series, he had large flies, stiff winds and unyielding fish in mind. The Ions stiff backbone generates the high line speeds and tight loops necessary to punch big flies into a strong headwind without causing hand and arm fatigue. The rod also has a stiff backbone for slugging it out with ornery denizens of the deep. The series features full-wells cork handles with composite pressure zones. Alignment dots allow for easy assembly. These four-piece travel rods have matte, stealth-grey blanks and 1-1/4 or 2 fighting butts depending on the model. Oversized stripper guides. Hard-chrome single-foot snake guides. 30 fish hero mark. Each rod comes with a grey Cordura nylon-covered rod tube. The RLS+ boasts the same high-end performance features as the best fly reels on the market, and does so at a value-driven price. The Rulon disc drag offers unrivaled smoothness and powerful braking to take on almost any underwater challenger. The sculpted drag knob makes it easy to adjust the settings and reduces weight. A large-arbor design ensures quick line retrieve and less line memory. The RLS+ is lightweight with additional porting. Machined-aluminum construction with a black-anodized finish withstands rugged use. Quick-release spool. Reel easily converts from left- to right-hand retrieve. 10-year limited warranty. Imported. Color: Grey. - $279.99
