Maps Not Included - Recon is the rod designed for the anglers who chase blue lines on topo maps and spend their nights bent over maps, plotting the next dayâ€™s adventures. For those who manage riverside meals of granola bars and jerky paired with the evening hatch instead of a sit-down meal at a sane hour. For anglers who would rather spend the day in the front of a skiff than behind a desk, weâ€™ve created a rod ready to work as hard as you do in the pursuit of fish.
Recon teams high-performance feel with lightness in hand. With close-in loading ability and the power for longer reach, the rods feature a modern shadow green blank and covert black nickel hardware.
Orvis built the new Recon to fit into an action profile that splits the difference between the Helios 3F rods and the Helios 3D rods. Thatâ€™s not the only thing the series takes from the Helios 3, however. Orvis also utilized the construction techniques and performance attributes of the Helios 3 in the new Recon Series. What does that mean? A Recon rod with better tracking, increased hoop strength, improved dampening, and improved accuracy. The Recon is also stronger, more impact-resistant, and higher-performing than ever before.
