Orvis Helios 2 - 4 Piece Freshwater Fly Rods
Orvis has brought you probably the finest fly rod made anywhere. This one is made in Vermont. It is called the Helios 2 or H2. The Helios 2 evolved from the ZG Helios Rod, introduced a few years ago. I remember well when Perk Perkins, CEO of Orvis handed me a prototype Helios on a tarpon fishing trip. He asked me what weight I thought it was. I guessed an 8 weight. It was a 10 weight and Perk fought and landed a big tarpon on it as I watched. I was impressed.
The Helios 2 is the lightest fly rod I can find anywhere. The Helios 2ís casting ability is rivaled only by a couple of rods I have cast, but those weigh more. Testing has shown that the Helios 2 is extremely durable. They are also beautiful.
So, what do you do when you find a fly rod designed and built to be the lightest, best casting and most durable rod made? Buy it if you can afford it!
Serious anglers are doing just that. They are people who wonít let money deprive them of the best tools made for the sport they love the most. They find such a tool from Orvis, the Helios 2 fly rod.
Iíve been fly fishing for over 50 years and I have been selling fly rods for 19 years. I donít know of any rods like these. Sure, I love the Sage One. Iím crazy about BVKís. I think the H2 is as good or better. It is a close call. Iíll take one of each.
Like all Orvis fly rods, the Helios 2 comes with an unlimited 25 year warranty. If you break yours, send it to Orvis with a minor repair fee and you will get your rod back with no questions asked. Whether you close your truck door on it or break it on a fish of a lifetime, they will get you back in business soon.
I highly recommend these fly rods.
