Orvis Helios-2 Fly Rods
Item # OR105

ORVIS "HELIOS 2" FLY RODS featuring all new tapers tuned to transfer energy along a smoother curve with steeper tapers and lighter tips resulting in unrivaled tracking. Aligned graphite fibers throughout with proprietary materials integrated into the tip using an Orvis exclusive veiling process increases the impact strength and dampening without adding weight. This layering of material also absorbs impacts to the rod, thus protecting the scrim and creating a stronger than ever tip. There is a 20% reduction in felt swing-weight compared to the original Helios. Steeper rear tapers provide fantastic lifting power. Midnight-Blue blanks are appointed with crushproof Recoil guides, California Buckeye Burl reelseat with Black-Nickel Skeleton (Black-Nickel with Carbon-Fiber inserts and fighting-butts on Salt and Switch models), super-grade cork handles, UV inhibiting paint coating, ferrule alignment dots and carbon fiber rod tube. Made in Manchester, VT. Orvis 25-year rod guarantee.

Orvis Superfine "Glass" Fly Rods
Item # OR107

ORVIS SUPERFINE "GLASS" FLY RODS - You're going to want at least one of these amazing rods in your collection (Bob). I've not cast anything quite like it before. By using today's tapers coupled with modern S2 fiberglass construction, ORVIS rod designers have come up with what I call "fast-glass". These are full-flex rods that have a wonderful medium to medium-fast feel with accuracy beyond any other glass rod that I've cast. They weigh near nothing in your hand and retain that classic fiberglass "bend the rod in half" while fighting a nice fish. Unsanded S2 fiberglass blanks are a nostalgic moss-green color with brown wraps, and feature an uplocking cork and polished silver reelseat, super-grade cork handle and chrome guides. Classic Superfine unsanded fiberglass rod tube included. Made in Manchester, VT. Orvis 25-year rod guarantee.

Item # OR110

INTRODUCING: ORVIS SPECIAL EDITION HELIOS 2 'COVERT' FLY RODS - Put a bunch of guides and a couple of rod designers at a table with one of the world's finest fly rods, add a few cold ones, and ask them: If you could do anything you wanted to customize this fly rod, what would you do? Thus, the birth of a special edition Helios 2 rod, the Helios 2 Covert. Totally blacked out with matte black finish, black guides and black hardware, no flash, no shine. A wicked looking fly rod, the likes of which have never before been seen.
