Honestly, look into a TFO or Reddington rod if you're considering Orvis. For the same price range, other competitors far outperform. (Kinda like buying Nike vs Puma, you won't get the brand recognition, for sure, but sometimes they are actually the superior product)
Yeah I wouldn’t even be considering Orvis due to price but these happen to be lightly used at a huge discount. Not sold on them yet though
The orvis hydros rod? They don’t make it anymore and it’s really good actually. Might have been the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of casting. The recon is pretty sweet though too.
Thanks for the input, sounds like either way I’d be getting a good setup
