Instead of the term “entry level,” we prefer to describe our Encounter rod outfits as “affordable awesomeness.” Built for the hardcore angler, yet priced with frugality in mind, the freshly updated 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. The Encounter rod outfit is easily the best value-priced outfit of its kind. Imported.
The Orvis 25-Year Guarantee means we’ll fix your broken fly rod, and if we can’t fix it, we’ll replace it, no questions asked. Purchase an Orvis Helios™ 3, Recon®, Superfine®, Clearwater®, or Mission rod from Orvis or an authorized Orvis dealer and we will repair or replace it for a quarter of a century. If we can’t repair it, we’ll choose a newer model rod of at least equal value to replace it. Your investment is assured for a nominal handling charge. This 25-Year Guarantee also applies to Helios, Access, Zero Gravity, Hydros, T3, TLS, and Clearwater (since 01/01/99) fly rods originally purchased from Orvis. Please note that this warranty does not apply to the original Frequent Flyer series (manufactured prior to January 2014), nor does it apply to our Streamline and Encounter®(manufactured prior to 2021) fly rod series, which are warrantied for defects in original workmanship. We will repair your broken, current model Encounter®(manufactured 2021 +) for 5 years after date of purchase, for a nominal handling charge. Please note, our guarantees apply to the original owner only, are not transferable, and proof of purchase may be required.
