Built for the hardcore angler, yet priced with frugality in mind
9'6" 6-wt. offers extra power and length for long mends and high-stick nymphing
Smooth, crisp performance
Packaged with a size II Encounter reel, 6-wt. line, backing, leader, and rod/reel case
Instead of the term “entry level,” we prefer to describe our new Encounter rod outfits as “affordable awesomeness.” Built for the hardcore angler, yet priced with frugality in mind, the Encounter rod series combines state-of-the-art rod design with a smooth, crisp performance—packaged with a large arbor Encounter reel (size II), weight-forward floating 6-wt. line, backing, leader, and rod/reel case. The 9'6" 6-weight Encounter rod outfit is a powerful big-water trout rod with that extra length that’s perfect for reaching out on long mends or high-stick nymphing. Excellent option for light steelhead as well. Go with confidence and a wallet that’s still intact.
