Helios™ 6-weight 10' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

3¼ oz. 10', 4-piece, Tip-Flex fly rod for 6-wt. line. We set out on an adventure to make the world's lightest fly fishing rod. Along the way, we also made the world's best.The new patent pending Helios is so far ahead of all others it skips generations in how a fly rod should feel, cast, and fish. It is so sublimely light, incredibly responsive, deadly accurate, and just plain easy and enjoyable to cast that to compare it to other graphite rods is like comparing graphite to bamboo. There is no comparison. The Helios is that good. And everyone is noticing. Designed specifically for the salt, this Helios fly rod is great for steelhead water as well. Quick-loading rod feels like a 4-weight. Light duty bonefish, warmwater bass, schoolie stripers and small steelhead. Ice cleans out of Recoil guides quickly and easily. A real plus when steelheading or trout fishing in cold conditions. Made in USA.

Helios fly rod,
September 9, 2012
By: Keith01

"I have just received my new Helios fly rod. I went today and tried it out and found it to be an excellent casting rod . It is very light and it still seems to have a bit of backbone and the tip flex 9.5 is forgiving enough to be a fishing rod. The fittings are also of high quality. I cannot praise the Orvis company enough. Excellent products and superb customer service. Thank you Keith."
