Instead of “entry level,” we think of our Encounter rod outfits as “affordable awesomeness”. This solid 9' 8-weight Encounter outfit has all the power and performance anyone could ask at a price that will have you wondering, what's the catch? Backup or first big-game rod outfit, this is the finest you will ever buy at this price.
