ORVIS RECON 906-4 FLY ROD : 6WT, 9'0"
The Orvis Recon 6wt may be the most versatile, best-performing fly rod under $700 on the market. Orvis completely redesigned the Orvis Recon to include the Helios 3 carbon technology, and the Recon delivers fast line speeds, tight loops, and excels in virtually any fishing situation. This Recon 6wt is the perfect choice as an all-purpose streamer rod, a dedicated smallmouth rod, is ideal for larger western rivers, and as a light saltwater rod when the wind settles down. The Recon 6wt rod is versatile and accurate enough to drop a dry fly in a tight window, and yet with the power to cut through the wind and deliver a big streamer to a far cut bank. Heavy nymph rigs turn over with ease. There are times in freshwater when bigger is better. If big rivers, lakes, and big flies for big fish are your passion, the Recon 906-4 is a mid-priced powerhouse that will do the job and then some.
Orvis Recon fly rods are each hand crafted in the USA with a completely new ferrule design, a matte olive blank with charcoal and spring green accents, and an anodized type iii reel seat with wood insert. The New Recon uses the Helios 3 as a foundation, 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.
