Whether you fish in cold, crisp water or the sultry tropical lagoons, a 9-wt. rod is handy to have in the quiver. This rod has steel in its backbone while retaining the nimbleness and excellent hand-feel of the Recon family. From summer steelies in the Cascades to rooster fish in Costa Rica to toothy Great Lakes pike, this workhorse will see the job done. The appropriate flex has been built into the rod, eliminating the need to worry about Tip- and Mid-Flex designations. Crafted with a completely new ferrule design, a stealthy shadow green blank, and heavy-duty black nickel hardware, the Recon is ready for your next adventure. Manchester, Vermont, USA.
