Instead of the term entry level, we prefer to describe our new Encounter rod outfits as affordable awesomeness. Built for the hardcore angler, yet priced with frugality in mind, the Encounter rod series combines state-of-the-art rod design with smooth, crisp performance. Ideal for big-water trout and an excellent option for light steelhead. 9'6" 6-weight. Imported.
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.
