A true all-around performer with the features and feel associated with rods four times the cost. Tim designed these rods to be airy-light with actions that benefit a wide range of casting styles and fishing situations. Bass to browns, bluegill to brookies, the Carbon XL covers it all.

I already own two of the echo base rods. I have a four weight and a seven weight. I thought those rods were and still are awesome in their own right.
However this little two weight in my opinion is just a wonderful rod to cast. You can feel the rod load on your backcast so well it's scary. I took the rod for a test drive over the weekend. I had a blast catching bluegills and crappie. I can't wait to take it to the driftless region and target brook trout with it.
If your on the fence about purchasing this rod don't be. Just get it, I am glad I did. I am already eyeing the six weight version to add to my arsenal.
My thanks to echo for making such wonderful rods that are very reasonably priced.
The rod has a medium fast taper and is light with good balance. Just throwing line in my back yard my assessment is that you won't go wrong here. My yard is full of trees and bushes so I was only able to get 50ft of line out, but it was pretty effortless to cast. I think a good caster would probably get at least 75ft out of this with decent accuracy. Cast under 30ft with the Carbon XL felt good too.
If you're in the market for a new rod and are considering paying > $300, you should try this one out first.
I paired the rod with a Hardy "LRH spooled with SI Frequency Magnum and Frequency full sink.
Launches both lines with ease. Shoots line like there's no tomorrow and has made my bass fishing a whole lot more enjoyable.
