G'day team,

So i managed to snap a Ross flystik the first day on the water.
I have messaged Ross rods for warrenty and have been advised they no long make the rods, and are now partnered with Echo.

They have given me a few options.

a) $60(usd) for either a Echo Ion or Echo Carbon
b) 65% off any echo rod
c) 50% off any Ross or abel reel.

So a few questions... Would anyone recomend the 9ft 10wt Ion for cod?
Would it be worth looking at the 50% of a abel reel and try selling it/buying a new Ross fly stik?
Would any other echo line up be good for cod?

Cheers
Sam

Just to confirm. I am not "giving away" the 50% discount off the abel reels, as this leaves me where i am currently with a broken rod.

However, if you are in the market and looking for a discounted abel reel that helps both you and i out feel free to enquire.

I've had a few Echo rods and they are a good well-priced product, so yes, the Echo Ion would do the job.

The rods are more robust than most and can take a beating - check out video of them testing a #10 to find breaking point...interesting stuff!
