|Echo TR2 rods are incredible casting tools. TR stands for Tim Rajeff. Tim Rajeff likes to throw things like pine cones, rocks, golf balls and especially fly lines. He throws things with incredible speed and accuracy. He is always calculating how to make human powered projectiles travel faster. Tim is a student of fly casting. His mind is continually quantifying how different parts of a cast influence total line speed. How does the rod/human connection influence fly line dynamics? How can rods be designed to produce even more line speed? The TR2 Series of 2-hand rods is designed to fit a wide variety of casting styles. Skagit, Scandi and Skandit styles of casting are all easily accomplished with these rods. This design approach produces rods that fits a wide range of applications in the field. Depending on the line choice, each rod might convey several different actions. The cosmetics of TRs (Tim Rajeff) Series are conservative. This series was designed for stealth and durability. The handle and fittings are very well made and practical.|
