I have a Helios (not the 2) and like you really enjoy fishing it. The main reason I bought the rod was because it is so light and responsive. You have to wonder if the extremely light rods being made today are not as strong as older heavier rods. It seems that theoretically there is probably not as much material being used to roll the blanks for today's high-end lightweight rods to help achieve the weight savings. Just an idea. Hopefully someone who knows a bit more about the rods and their construction can either elaborate or tell me I'm way off base...
