Echo2 and CND Atlantis

Does anyone know which of the Echo2 scando rods accepts a grain load similar to the CND Atlantis 9/10 for overhead casting?

interested specifically in overhead. The Atlantis is nice - the Echo2 considerably cheaper.

thanks,

Probably the 7. The 8 falls in right between the small and large atlantis.

Sean, thanks much.

the RIO chart lists the Outbound WF9 for Echo 7 wt, and the WF11 for the CND 9/10. I can only imagine the latter is a typo, heavy

Yeah the 11 works OK but the 10 probably is the right line an the 9/10 atlantis. The 9 works OK as well on the 9/10 atlantis but things have to be just right.

The 9/10 atlantis is not as strong on the butt as the echos so you would probably find the 7wt to be OK and it should handle most stripers. Definitely stronger than the 11' 7 T&T.

However the 8wt echo might not be a bad choice if it really works well with the 10wt outbound like RIOs charts suggest. Then you would be right in line with what the 9/10 atlantis throws. I have the 9 echo but have only used it so far with the 9 delta spey line and have not ran any outbounds through it. The 8wt would also give you a little more oomph for when you catch that 40 pounder.

Hi,

I've also been looking to get into the two-handed game.

For casting big flies with shooting heads are the "Scandinavian" style rods the best, opposed to "Spey" or "Skagit"?

Currently I cast T-14 heads with a 10wt - would the ECHO Scandinavian 9wt allow me to cast a bigger head and fly? Assuming a lot of practice...
