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 a smooth, crisp performance-packaged with a large arbor Encounter reel, weight-forward floating line, backing, and leader. The 9'6 6-weight Encounter rod outfit is a powerful big-water trout rod with that extra length that's perfect for reaching out on long mends or high-stick nymphing. Excellent option for light steelhead as well. Go with confidence and a wallet that's still intact.
