Warmwater species such as light bass and panfish are a perfect target for this rod with the ability to cover a lot of open water. The Recon 904-4 is an exceptional choice for all-around versatility in a mid-price fly rod with premium performance built in.HeliosT 3 is the benefactor behind the new Recon, utilizing its construction techniques and performance attributes to refine and improve the new series. Blanks are matte olive with charcoal and spring green accent. Quick rod identifier on the blank.
Silver snake and stripping guide. Pewter type III anodized aluminum reel seat with wood insert. Helios 3 Technology - 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. That'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. 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. The Recon 2 features silver stripping guides that help anglers fight the largest fish. These stripping guides are durable and corrosion-resistant for freshwater and saltwater performance when it matters.
Plus, these guides are lightweight so they don't add unnecessary weight to the rod overall. Silver Snake Guides - Similarly, the snake guides on the new Recond rods feature improved performance and durable reliability. These guides are the perfect combination of affordability and durability which is why Orvis chose to put them on the new Recon rods.
Pewter Type III Anodized Aluminum Reel Seat. Some major technological advancements have been made on these new Recon rods and the reel seat is certainly one of them. The freshwater rods feature a stylish wood insert but that's not the most important story on these reel seats. Type III Anodizing may be the strongest anodizing on any reel seat ever. And the freshwater and saltwater versions of the Recon 2 utilize Type III for incredible durability.
Full Cork Handle - All rods in the series feature a full-wells cork handle. The cork is comfortable and fits an angler's hand well for a solid performance on the water. The Recon rod series comes in a Nylon-covered rod tube for protection during transportation and storage.
These Nylon rod tubes aren't waterproof, but they protect the rod from dings and dents when traveling. Alignment dots for quick assembly.
