Review 1 for Helios 2 9-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex
My new favorite fly rod,
June 11, 2013
from Rhode Island
"I have used many different rods in the past and I can honestly say this one is worlds apart from the competition. My very first time picking it up I threw the entire 300 grain depth charge line without a problem. It is lighter than all 10 weights I own and has just as much backbone. This rod will be the last one you will ever purchase (unless you get an 8 and a 10 like I did). It casts smoother than the Helios, lighter and stronger per ounce than Sage Xi3. It looks fragile but it casts big flies to stripers no problem."

Review 2 for Helios 2 9-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex
"I used this rod on a 3 day trip to the Everglades last february. Winter fishing is very technical, requiring absolut precise casts 5 feet or 60 feet. The rod could cast with total control and can lift the line in seconds if the fish turn to the other side or move. This is the best 9 weight ever."
