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 day’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, we’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.
There are times when freshwater fishing needs a little more muscle like banging the far bank of the Big Horn from a drift boat with heavy streamers or dropping a big honking deer hair frog in the middle of some lily pads. The EVA foam-and-cork fighting butt offers the leverage to drag a fat bass out of the weeds, and the 7" full wells grip means it will be a comfortable fight. In the fresh or salt, this rod is perfect for everything from light bonefishing, sea trout, puts new meaning into the fun of chasing schoolie stripers, and is a go to streamer rod in western waters. Crafted with a completely new ferrule design, a stealthy shadow green blank, and heavy-duty black nickel hardware, the Recon is ready for your next adventure. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.
