This rod is a steelheader's dream with premium performance at an exceptional mid-price point. The Recon 8-weight 10' rod is the answer for power, reach, and a rod built in Vermont by Orvis rod designers with just the action you need. Perfect for saltwater shore anglers as well, with the length to keep that backcast up off the beach. Big flies, big reach, big fish, and a price far below the performance, accuracy, and strength you will receive in return.
Helios 3 is the benefactor behind the new Recon, utilizing its construction techniques and performance attributes to refine and improve the new series. Increased hoop strength, better tracking, improved damping, and ultimately, significantly improved accuracy are now incorporated into the Recon that is also stronger, more impact resistant, and offers the mid-price buyer access to the best technology Orvis fly rods have to offer.
