Hey guys, my Aetos setup got stolen this summer and I'm looking to make a little upgrage. Budget is around $300 so looking for a used Orvis Recon 5WT or something similar. Just using for high mountain lake trout fishing. Let me know if you have anything. Thanks!
I have for sale a 2nd generation Orvis Recon 890-4 (9’ 8 weight). The rod is like-new condition. I have cast the rod outside on two occasions but never fished it. There are some small scratches on the end of the plastic/cordura rod tube that were there when I received it. There are no scratches...
Looking for a used Orvis Recon in the following configurations:
If you have one of these rods in good condition and are willing to part with it, please shoot me a PM.
I am selling a brand new Orvis Recon 10' 3wt. This is the model with the down locking reelseat and fighting butt to aid with balance... no need to upsize your reel. Ended up having a friend build a custom rod instead. Comes with paperwork, rod sock, rod tube, and ferrule wax.
Selling a near mint Orvis Recon 8'6" 5wt with blank warranty card. Similar in action to the 905 Recon but a little lighter in hand and swing weight, recovers a little bit faster, and tracks just a little straighter. Fished for an afternoon and decided I want to go with something slower. Asking...
Anyone have experience with these two rods? I'm curious how the feel and action differ between them. Qualities like casting distance, light presentations, turning over heavier flies, punching through wind, and overall flex profile. I don't think I can go wrong with either one for an all...
So I went through the Columbia Basin and over to the Snake for the geezer hunt.
If you liked last years pheasant season, this one will be slightly less enjoyable.
The state is continuing to plant fewer birds each year. I believe it will be totally gone is a few years.
But, the disappointment...
Looking at getting a Recon 7wt and wanted to know if anyone has any experience with it. I already have a 5 wt Recon and it's my favorite rod by far. Looking for something a bit heavier for some inshore Striper fishing.
Orvis Recon 696-4 with blank warranty card. This was my backup rod and only fished on 2 occasions for 2 hours total. Rod is super clean, rod tube has a few scuffs from rolling around on my back seat. Asking $300 shipped CONUS. Pics available at https://goo.gl/photos/hUdwJT47VHPbY6RJA
Selling my orvis recon 8'4" 3wt and Orvis mirage combo. The mirage is the 1-3wt size in black and last years model. It has a small scratch on the bottom. But is in 9/10 condition. Includes Rio perception 3wt line. $325 shipped USA.
For sale is a nearly new Orvis Recon 10ft 4wt with unregistered warranty card. Fished one afternoon for a couple of hours and decided I would rather swing soft hackles then high stick nymph. Would also make a great float tube rod. $300 shipped in the lower 48. Paypal preferred, can discuss...
I'm looking for a newer, medium fast 9' 8 wt. saltwater rod for less than $600. A used or demo Motive or Recon would be my first choice (balancing performance and cost) but the right price on a used Helios 2, Scott Meridian or NRX could work too.
For sale is a twice used Orvis Recon 4wt. No scratches to reel seat or rod. Cork is slightly dirty from when purchased. The rod is ultra light. I have no issues with the rod at all. I am just trying to save for a high end reel. It comes with tube sock and warranty card.
$300 plus shipping -...
