Instead of the term "entry level," Kilwell prefer to describe their 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, weight-forward floating line, backing, leader and tube.
The Encounter rod outfit is easily the best value-priced outfit of its kind. The Encounter series rods are exempt from the 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 our Rod Shop, Orvis will be happy to replace it.
