3½ oz. 9' 4-piece Tip Flex fly rod for 7-wt. line. Why would we take the world's best fly rod and change it? The answer is simple. We're driven by constant improvement. Put this rod in your hands and feel the rush. You'll completely understand.It's the pull of a dime-bright steelhead on a swung fly. It's seeing a bonefish materialize 30 feet in front of you. It's the bulldogging carp racing away with your streamer. It's that moment when your tireless preparation meets power and precision. It's why we fish. And it's why we built this fast action 7 wt. Helios 2. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.

Customer Reviews for Helios 2 7-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex
Review 1 for Helios 2 7-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex
"Sometimes a 6 weight will do, but often the flies are a little larger than a 6 can handle, but an 8 weight would be too much gun for the fish size. This is a perfect 7 rod. I tried an 8 weight line and it did not perform well, proving it is designed for specific 7 weight line. Total accuracy, lightness and power. One cons: Orvis should use a smaller fighting butt, so smaller 7 weight reels would make the outfit look better."

Review 2 for Helios 2 7-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

"Orvis has simply come out ahead of the game with the 9' #7 Helios 2. I have used this rod for the vast majority of my salmon angling this season and it is simply the best rod I have ever used. It is light, sensitive and beyond strong when it comes to fishing. What I truly like about this rod is the inherent feel to the rod. It is a tool for fishers and it lets you cast. Heck, I liked it so much that I purchased the #6 and the #8 versions as well. All rods are stunning."

"This is one amazing fly rod, never before have I fished a fast action rod that had so much feel. It doesn't matter if you are fishing a floating Bass taper, sink tip or full sink streamer line, this rod handles them all well and will launch the biggest of flies with ease. The perfect blend of power and flex with lightning fast recovery, I liked it so much, I ordered a second one..."
