Whether you need the reach for light steelheading or the backcast height to avoid the beach behind you, the Recon 966-4 gives you that extended length. This is a great heavy nymphing rod with the power to handle heavy rigs and the reach to control the drift for longer periods. If you're looking for extended line control and mending ability, the Recon 966-4 is a superior option, that while extending your reach is still close to standard rod length, making it a very versatile tool to have in your quiver. In fly fishing, reach and power are good things. This rod has plenty of both at a price that will have you smiling all the way to the water.
Helios 3 is the benefactor behind the new Recon, utilizing its construction techniques and performance attributes to refine and improve the new series.
