Musky & Pike eat big food and the flies used to target them match the hatch! Not many rods are built from square one to load up and deliver half a chicken.
With the help of Midwest Musky Junkies
ECHO has teamed up with some of the Midwest’s most obsessed musky anglers to develop a series of rods to do it all: Close to the water, high gunnels, figure eight, full sinking, intermediate tip, 1000 casts, stupid big flies… You get the idea.
The Musky comes in two length options, both in 11wt. The 8’8″ for fishing close to the water, and the 9’4″ for the “taller” boats. Choose the one that gets you the best figure eight!

ECHO MUSKY- Model Overview
Action vs Power Comparison - Single Hand
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.
