ORVIS HELIOS-3 BLACKOUT 11’ 3-WEIGHT EURO ROD - It’s what happens when you unleash American ingenuity on constantly-evolving European Nymphing techniques. This is the latest development. A supremely accurate 11’ rod with the swing weight of a 10 footer, it’s got the unreal sensitivity to telegraph the exact number of times your nymphs kiss gravel. Translation: Significantly less missed strikes and more fish to hand. Note the 11’ length— that extra 6’’ is crucial for intuitive drift control in extremely complex current seams with a softer tip to protect even the finest tippets. The product of strong collaboration, this is a high-concept rod born of a deep need from storied guides and their long conversations with the Orvis design team, perfecting rod development in lock-step with insightful anglers pushing the technique toward new territory. Reel seat is type III anodized aluminum in Midnight black w/Matte Midnight carbon insert. Black blank, black accent wrap, black/black main wraps, REC recoil single foot guides and SiC/titanium stripping guides. Weighs in at just 3 1/2 oz. Backed by the Orvis 25-year guarantee. Made in Vermont.
