Orvis Recon 9' 5 Weight Fly Rod Touching Her Toes on the Orvis Client Simulator

Posted by Dave Hise on

I just attended the Orvis Endorsed Guide Rendezvous in Asheville, North Carolina and witnessed something amazing. Check out the Orvis Recon 9 foot 5 weight Fly Rod on the Orvis Client Simulator. I witnessed the first of these tests some 4 years ago which resulted in shattered rods at some point or another. Orvis rod designers/engineers have come along way since then with the design and manufacturing of their fly rods. Helios 2, Superfine Glass and Recon rods now rarely break under the stresses of the Client Simulator. That's a 5 weight folks. I think its quite impressive what these rods can handle under pressure.

Check out the battle between the Orvis Recon 9' 5 Weight and the Orvis Client Simulator.
