The Orvis Recon is one of the best mid-priced fly rods on the market. A high performance blank means the Recon is an ultra-fast rod. The Recon is purposed for reconnaissance; the rod’s lightweight design and fast action make it perfect for casting all day while searching for bones on the flats or trout in western rivers. The stealthy dark green rod color contributes to Orvis’ well-chosen naming of the Recon. Whether you’re casting into the wind all day or just out for a quick mission, the Orvis Recon fulfills every angler’s stealthy urge.
Helios 2 Technology – The modern shadow green blank of the Recon matches the character of the rod’s modernly distinct high performance and extremely lightweight blank makeup. Built with Helios 2 thermoplastic resin scrim technology which encapsulates graphite fibers for increased durability, the Recon is super lightweight and extremely crush-resistant. While a blank’s lightweight maneuverability can sometimes mean the rod has a weak backbone, the Recon blends fast action with light swing weight to make roll casting or long casting into a stiff breeze seem effortless.
Hard Chrome Stripping Guide – The Recon has one large stripping guide to feed line into the smaller snake guides. The stripping guide provides easy functionality and industry accepted design. The Recon displays black guide wraps to compliment the dark green blank.
Hard Chrome Snake Guides – Seemingly a classic in today’s fly fishing industry, silver snake guides fit the Recon nicely and provide a typical modern appearance.
Black Nickel Reel Seat – The Recon offers a subtle, all-black nickel anodized aluminum reel seat with a dark burl wood insert. The wood insert is complimented by an anodized aluminum uplocking reel seat.
Full Cork Handle – The Recon boasts a seven-inch Reversed Half-Wells high quality cork handle.
Aluminum Rod Tube – The Recon comes with a shiny, stylish, silver rod tube. The rod tube and rod sock are new Orvis designs for 2015. The rod tube portrays the Orvis trout.
The Orvis 25-Year Guarantee – The Recon falls under the one-of-a-kind Orvis Guarantee. If broken within a quarter-century of purchase, Orvis vows to fix your Recon. If they cannot fix the rod, Orvis will replace it regardless of circumstance. Normal wear and tear, accidental breakage, misuse and mistreatment along with anything else resulting in a broken rod are all covered in the Orvis 25-Year Guarantee. No questions asked.
