Instead of “entry level,”, we think of our Encounter rod outfits as “affordable awesomeness.”. 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 our 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 our Rod Shop, Orvis will be happy to replace it.
