Performance. Precision. Flat-out FAST. That’s the BOOST SALT. A rod that’s not only light in hand but it also has killer features like a sexy slim profile, stealthy matte finish, and black hardware. It’s hard to decide which is faster… the cosmetics or the action.
ECHO BOOST SALT
The ECHO BOOST SALT series is designed so that anglers can make accurate long presentations with few or no false casts, quickly. Therefore a very fast rod like the BOOST is an asset to an angler that doesn’t have time to false cast several times to load enough line for a long cast.
The BOOST SALT was built for fly fisher men and women with an aggressive casting stroke and it enables you to achieve maximum line speed with minimal effort. It also offers the ultimate balance of power and precision. Perfect for folks that can’t live without that modern, fast action that many challenging fishing situations demand.

Action vs Power Comparison
The Action vs. Power matrix is used for comparison between ECHO rod models. Utilizing this chart, you’ll be able to choose an ECHO rod that best fits you and your personal casting stroke. The vertical axis indicates the rod’s power, while the horizontal axis indicates the rod’s action. In simple terms, single-hand rod action is derived from the top half of the rod, while power is derived from the bottom half.
Fast action rods feature softer tips than medium action rods and provide a ‘stiffer’ feel. Fast action rods excel in the hands of anglers with more aggressive casting strokes and greater stroke control. Medium action rods are ideal for anglers with more fluid casting strokes and have a larger ‘sweet spot’ for a wider range of casting strokes. Consistently throwing a tailing loop? Your rod’s action may not be a good fit to you and your casting stroke.
A rod’s power is its resistance to flexing under load. Powerful rods are ‘beefier’ through the bottom half, generate higher line speeds, and are more adept at keeping big fish pinned. Delicate rods are more presentation-oriented, protect light tippet, and are a better choice for picky fish.
