Scientific Anglers Sonar Titan Intermediate/ Sink 3/ Sink 5

We like to call it the I/3/5 but whatever you call this line the fact is that it is one of the best sinking lines ever made. When you have to get deep this is the line you want.

Loads quickly and delivers the biggest flies to the furthest targetsExcellent turnover due to short, powerful head and short front taperTriple-density construction provides straight-line connection to flyMastery Texturing reduces friction, providing longer casts, easier pick-up, and increased durabilityFor temperate climatesBraided multifilament coreSink Rates:Intermediate = 1.25 ips Sink 3 = 2.5 - 3.5 ips,  Sink 5 = 4.5 - 6.0 ips

Orvis has totally revamped the Recon series and this is a much different (and better) rod than the original Recon 8-weight. The new rod is a lot more powerful and handles those mid to long distances with ease, tracking well and giving me nice tight loops. The Recon is our choice for the best mid-priced rod if you want something that will perform well at all distances, but is especially good at mid to longer distances, and in the wind.

If you are looking for a lighter 8-weight with better feel, we recommend the Echo Prime 4pc, which can be found in our Mid Priced Presentation Outfit here. 

The Rush, a fantastic reel by Galvan, is also the poster child of economy. Using an extremely durable frame and the same drag that its big brother the Torque has, this reel really hits the mark.

Use the drop-down menus to help customize the outfit to your specific needs.
