Orvis built the new Recon to fit into an action profile that splits the difference between the Helios 3F rods and the Helios 3D rods. That’s not the only thing the series takes from the Helios 3, however. Orvis also utilized the construction techniques and performance attributes of the Helios 3 in the new Recon Series. What does that mean? A Recon rod with better tracking, increased hoop strength, improved dampening, and improved accuracy. The Recon is also stronger, more impact-resistant, and higher-performing than ever before.
