Instead of entry level, we think of our Encounter rod outfits as affordable awesomeness. This solid 9' 8-weight Encounter outfit has all the power and performance anyone could ask at a price that will have you wondering, what's the catch? Backup or first big-game rod outfit, this is the finest you will ever buy at this price.
The Encounter series rods are exempt from our standard 25-year guarantee, but do come with a limited warranty against defects in the original workmanship. If, by any means, the rod is deemed defective by our Rod Shop, Orvis will be happy to replace it.
