The 9foot 4weight is beloved by anglers for many reasons. Versatile across all manner of water, it will be the smallstream rod you reach for on a blustery fall day and the dryfly rod in hand during a calm summer morning's PMD hatch. The Recon 9044 offers the delicacy of the fourweight line with the backbone to reach out over larger water. The appropriate flex has been built into the rod, eliminating the need to worry about tip and midflex designations. Crafted with a completely new ferrule design, a stealthy shadow green blank, and heavyduty black nickel hardware, the Recon is ready for your next adventure. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.
