Instead of the term “entry level,” Orvis prefers to describe their 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.
