VANCOUVER, Wash., 15 Feb 2024 – In response to the growing popularity of center access indicators, ECHO Fly Fishing proudly introduces the Center Lock Strike Indicator.

Over the past few years, center access indicators have gained traction among fly fishermen, appreciated for their casting performance and strike detection capabilities. However, despite their advantages, several persistent issues have hindered their widespread adoption. The Center Lock Strike Indicator was designed to eliminate these challenges.

The distinguishing feature of the Center Lock Strike Indicator is its innovative design, which effectively resolves the common problems encountered by anglers who opt for this style of indicator.

Key features of the Center Lock Strike Indicator include:

1. Intuitive Design: The indicator features distinct knurling on the female side, providing anglers with a tactile guide for easy identification and grip, even in adverse weather conditions.

2. Tangle Prevention: To prevent accidental tippet twisting, the male side incorporates two channels, ensuring a secure grip without compromising performance.

3. Versatile Performance: The male post of the indicator boasts two slots, allowing anglers to choose between a sliding or firm grip, catering to varying fishing conditions and preferences.

4. Enhanced Tippet Compatibility: A tapered inside design accommodates finer tippet, offering anglers greater flexibility and precision in their fishing pursuits.

5. Convenient Rigging: Strategically placed slots enable effortless rigging, facilitating a seamless fishing experience for both novice and experienced anglers alike.

6. Secure Seal: Subtle notches on the male side ensure a tight seal when the two halves are joined, preventing water infiltration and preserving buoyancy.

Available in three vibrant colors - white, orange, and optic green - and three sizes to suit different fishing scenarios, the Center Lock Strike Indicator is not only practical but also environmentally conscious. All components, including the foam and hard parts, are biodegradable, reflecting Rajeff Sports’ commitment to sustainability and conservation.

“Over the past few years a certain style of strike indicator has become more and more popular - center access indicators. I think people like the way they cast, some people prefer the way they detect the strike but there are problems that have plagued people that want to use this style of indicator. This new Center Lock strike indicator solves all of those problems.” -Tim Rajeff
