For the anglers who chase blue lines on topo maps and spend their nights bent over satellite imagery, plotting the next day's adventures. For those who manage riverside meals of granola bars and jerky, hastily consumed while watching rising fish. For anglers who would rather spend the day in the front of a skiff than behind a desk.
The most versatile of all saltwater rods, the nine-foot eight-weight is also one of our best sellers. Reborn into the Recon family and sure to be a new favorite, this rod can handle stripers, bones, and reds. Chase carp on the flats and big bass in the weeds. Throw hefty flies to snook, albies, bluefish, and bonito. For those just starting to chase big game, this is the rod to learn the lay of the land. For seasoned anglers, it might just become your new favorite. The appropriate flex has been built into the rod, eliminating the need to worry about tip- and mid-flex designations. 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.
