Review 1 for Helios 2 6-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex
"Of the nine fly rods I've owned, Orvis rods have by far been the bulk. They never seem to disappoint. From the super soft action on the Superfine Touch to the big fly hurling tip of the ZG Helios 7wt, I've been happy with every one. The 9' 6wt tip flex H2 was right on time. The 5th of my Helios rods it does a wonderful job of punching out big streamers (with accuracy) and big buggy bass fly. I paired it with a Hatch Finatic 4+ reel to be my go to outfit for high dirty water days for trout, any day on smallie water or hitting largemouths."

Love it so far!,

"I got the outfit with the Mirage III reel after attending you Fly Fishing School at Dogwood Canyon. I got to cast the Mid-Flex rod in 5-weight at the school and loved it. After talking to Neal, I decided on the 6-weight tip flex so that I could turn over larger flies. I have only cast it on some of our local pond and lakes for small-mouth bass so far and I must say that really does turn over large streamers and poppers very well. It also is excellent when casting into the wind, even when using these large heavy flies. It also has a serious backbone when it comes to fighting fish. I caught a four pound 7 oz small-mouth that was in a serous mood to fight. The Helios 2 made it easy. I just can't wait to get it on the Gunnison after some monster Cutbows! Thank you Orvis for a wonderful rod with a lot of power and some serious backbone."
