This rod can handle stripers, bones, and reds. Chase carp on the flats and big bass in the weeds. 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. Recon teams a high-performance, fast action feel with light swing weight allowing for close-in loading prowess and the power for longer reach. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
