High-end fly rods can cost more than your monthly mortgage payment. While affordably priced, the Recon shares a lineage with Orvis's world-famous, award-winning, and pricey Helios 3. Improved hoop strength, sharpshooter accuracy, and damp handling are all at your fingertips with this high-performance redesign of a longtime classic. While Orvis revamped the tech, the Recon remains one of the lightest rods on the rack, making it a favorite for long days on the river, especially amongst anglers who enjoy hiking to their honey holes. We tested the 7'6" 2-weight this summer and fall and found it the perfect companion for backpacking along alpine streams. That said, the Recon lineup includes both saltwater and freshwater rods, ranging from that dexterous 2-weight to game-ready 12-weights. All are equipped with silver snake and stripping guides and anodized aluminum reel seats, come in durable nylon rod tubes, and are backed by Orvis' angler-approved 25-year guarantee.
