Helios™ Spey 7-weight 13' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

A two-handed, 13 foot, 7-weight Helios Spey rod that incoroporates Helios's award-winning graphite technology to bring you the lightest and most versatile fly rod series on the market. The Helios Spey rods can handle not only traditional Spey lines, but newer Scandanavian and Skagit lines. The 13 foot two-handed spey fly rod is powerful enough for big rivers, but designed for smaller salmon and steelhead rivers. Incredibly lightweight at 6⅝ oz., you can cast all day without fatigue.

"I just picked up new 13 foot 7-weight Helios Spey rod for an October Steelhead trip to the Rogue. I have never used a two-handed rod before but this is incredibly easy to cast. With a little practice I am easily shooting 80' casts with my Skagit head. This rod is surprisingly lightweight. I predict it will be easy to cast all day. I even took a lesson from a fly shop owner who deals another top rod brand and he was very impressed with the performance of the Helios. If you are interested in Spey, give it a try. You will love it! Especially if you have the Helios."
