Seen by many as the best all-around rod size on the market, the Recon 8'6" 5-weight is the ideal rod for the one-rig angler. The slightly shorter length allows for small stream versatility, but high modulus graphite ensures this rod came to play when faced with larger water. Present small dries with finesse and larger flies with accuracy, while maintaining the lightweight sensitivity of a five-weight. The appropriate flex has been built into the rod, eliminating the need to worry about tip- and mid-flex designations. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
