Pflueger Echelon Baitcast Combos

The Echelon Baitcast Combo comes with a top of the line All Star Instinct Rod, built with a multi-modulus graphite that is strong, lightweight and sensitive. They include Fuji Guides, lightweight graphite reel seats and premium cork handles and steel hook keeper.

 

The Echelon low profile baitcasting reel from Pflueger gives anglers good performance for a good price. The Echelon features a reinforced graphite frame and sideplates four stainless steel ball bearings plus the instant anti-reverse roller bearing and a machined ported and anodized aluminum spool for quick drag free startup when you cast. The compact shape and size of the Pflueger Echelon will make holding your rod and reel all day an easy job and will help reduce fatigue.

 

The light weight, 7.8 ounces, of the Echelon, with a gear ratio of 6.3:1, will make any rod/reel combination feel lighter and Pflueger built this reel to last.

 

The Intelligent Brake System (IBS) in the Echelon LP has a metal brake pad that automatically adjusts to the speed of the spool. When the spool is spinning quickly during a cast, centrifugal force causes the brake pad to rotate toward the magnets located in the left side cover. The result is higher braking power and less backlash.

 

When retrieving line after a cast, the brake pad remains in its original position and away from the magnets to offer minimal resistance while turning the handle. This is all done automatically. The IBS takes over to deliver effortless retrieval and long cast without backlash.

 

Reel Features include:

• 4 double-shielded stainless steel ball bearings

• One-way clutch instant anti-reverse bearing

• BS Intelligent Brake System adjusts to spool speed for longer casts and effortless retrieves

• Lightweight, one-piece graphite frame

• Machined, ported and anodized aluminum spool

• Smooth multi-disc main gear applied star drag system

• Thumb bar spool release

• Available in red or grey version
