The Orvis Recon 9′ 8 weight Fly Rod is one of the two best-selling Recon length and line weight configurations. (The other one is the 905-4.) For the saltwater angler, the 908-4 is generally the first rod in the quiver based solely on its versatility in species. From bonefish to bonito, stripers to bluefish, false albacore to redfish, the Recon 908-4 is a saltwater workhorse that can do it all. With improved accuracy and strength, this rod is a sight fishing gem. If you like to drag big bass out of the weeds in freshwater, this rod can do it with ease, and at this price point, having one is easy and having two is even better. Helios™ 3 is the benefactor behind the new Recon, utilizing its construction techniques and performance attributes to refine and improve the new series. Increased hoop strength, better tracking, improved damping, and ultimately, significantly improved accuracy are now incorporated into the Recon that is also stronger, more impact resistant, and offers the mid-price buyer access to the best technology Orvis fly rods have to offer. Proudly designed and made in Manchester, VT, USA.
