Review 1 for Helios 2 3-weight 8'4" Fly Rod—Mid Flex
"I got this rod in November and fished it next day on one of my favorite wild creeks. It not only held up with heavy tandem nymph rigs, but delicately threw dry dropper rigs flawlessly. Thanks Orvis!"

Review 2 for Helios 2 3-weight 8'4" Fly Rod—Mid Flex
Best Orvis Rod, Ever,
August 29, 2013
from Crested Butte, Colorado
"I recently purchased an Orvis Helios 2, 8'4", 3 weight. I have a friend who had the original Helios and I wanted one for myself. I was pleasantly surprised to find the 2 was even a lighter, more sensitive and more responsive rod. I can really feel the line load on the back cast and can still send out a long delicate cast. I have caught everything from a few brookies to a few 18-20 inch bows. I am getting another Helios 2."

Review 3 for Helios 2 3-weight 8'4" Fly Rod—Mid Flex
August 17, 2013
from Stafford, VA
"I've been fly fishing for over 30 years. purchaced my 1st Orvis (ClearWater 7-W) which I love 3 years ago. Last year upgraded to Access 5-W Tip-Flex; Fantastic Rod. This year test drove Hilios2-W 8'4" in the back of store. I cast the line 20 yds toward the sales man. hel held the line in his hand and asked me to pull and increase tension. H2 2W Rod broke @ the "O" OrvisLOGO. So I went on and purchaced the H2 3-W took it to the river next day beautiful day cought some nice small mouth bass. Within an Hr in my fishing the rod broke @ the handle during casting and I had to end my trip early. Went back to store and replaced it with Access. Hope the H3 is designed better."
