With all due respect, i have heard nothing but praise & good feed back regarding TFO's PR and their second to none warranty/service but I have also heard of breaking issues. Having said that, I realize that a good percentage of rod breaks may be user error. From what i read on their website, Echo's warranty is very similar to TFO's with the exception of their one piece rod but I don't have any first hand experience on their turn around time. Regardless how quick a rod is warranty replaced, if you are away for a week fishing on another continent that's not going to help you any (obviously a back up rod will) and that's why i was drawn to the amazing strenght demonstrated by the Echo rods on their video. As Earl pointed out, a 12wt.rod is more of a fighting stick than a casting one although needless to say both attributes would be prefered.
