When life demands the power of an eight-weight but the close-quarters prowess of a shorter rod, reach for the 7'11" 8-weight Recon. Ideal for casting big, wonky flies into tight spots, this rod is ideal for battling bonefish, snook, redfish, carp, or whatever mid-size species suits your fancy. Length fits bass tournament specifications. The EVA foam-and-cork fighting butt ensures leverage once you've hooked into your quarry, and the 7" full wells grip means it will be a comfortable fight. 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. Manchester, Vermont, USA.
