Smooth, crisp performance,
Built for the hardcore angler yet priced with frugality in mind
The 9′ 5-weight Encounter rod outfit is the answer to the question, “What’s the first rod I should buy?” Ideal as an all-around rod and for bigger trout water, the 9′ 5-weight Encounter rod outfit is the best value-priced outfit of its kind.
The Encounter series rods are exempt from Orvis standard 25-year guarantee, but do come with a limited warranty against defects in the original workmanship. If, by any means, the rod is deemed defective by the Orivs Rod Shop, Orvis will be happy to replace it.
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 (size II), weight-forward floating 5-wt. line, backing, leader, and rod/reel case. The 9′ 5-weight Encounter rod outfit is easily the best value-priced outfit of its kind. This is the perfect backup for an experienced traveling angler or for a new angler who plans to spend most of their time on bigger trout waters.
