Purchased this at the start of the summer. I tried swing casting a couple of times, and it is not really my gig. Rod still has a blank warranty card. Echo Ion 10/12 reel has 400ft of rio 30lb backing with a RiO Intouch Swith 8wt line. Also included with the deal is another echo spool. Feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions $300+ Shipping
