Powerful casting rods for high line speeds, tight loops and rapid presentations against the wind, weighted flies and heavy sinkers.
With the Helios 3 Orvis continues their popular high-end rod series which ever since competes in the ranks of the premium rod segment - certainly and without a doubt. Helios rods are a milestone in rod building history and have rightfully known to impress the fly fishing community. Therefore, it didn’t surprise us that again the new Helios 3 convinces with mind blowing performance, perfect feeling, A1 built quality and loads of fun on the water! Guaranteed!
Technically viewed the rod builders at Orvis put a lot of emphasis on reducing undesired vibrations in the rod. Compared to its predecessor the Helios 3 rods recover faster with significantly dampened vibrations and hence transport your line and fly on a truer path to the target. Vertical and horizontal tip frequency during the cast have thus been reduced to an absolute minimum to create a rod that tracks extremely well and lays out some wonderfully precise casts. These unique properties have been achieved by strategically reinforcing the rod to prevent the blank from ovalizing when flexed. Additionally that resulted in a higher deflection distance to breakage of the rod which gives it more lifting power and strength while at the same time feeling lighter in hand due to a remarkably lighter swing weight – It really feels light in hand to a degree where you would love to fish this rod for hours and days!
Helios3 rods are available in two different versions: F (Feel) and D (Distance). All Helios 3D blanks feature a matt black finish and blue highlights. As the name indicates they are built and perfected for maximum distance, high line speeds and tight loops. Their action reminds us of the popular Orvis Tip Flex, but during the fight the 3D generates much more power in the lower part of the blank. They effortlessly cast weighted flies and heavy sinkers against a strong head wind with dominance and without loosing any controle or precision. Medium to long range presentations are where these rods excel and they are not shy of laying out an entire fly line – Absolutely confident distance rods for lakes, the coast, flats and offshore fisheries or people who simply preferring fast action blanks.
