Details "Premium fly rod for half the price!"

For me, it was between a Helios 2 and this rod. I was told the two were built on almost the same blank by the guy at the fly shop and the Helios just had a lot of upgraded features. The Recon is very lightweight and has a high quality feel, I liked it the most of all the mid-range "luxury" fly rods. It is also nice because it comes with an aluminum rod tube for storage and travel.
