Orvis Helios 2 Covert 9' 8 Weight Fly Rod- 3¼ oz., 4pc., 9' 8wt., Tip Flex. Put a bunch of guides and a couple of rod designers at a table with the world's finest fly rod, 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. The Covert is the finest fly rod in the world with the added dimension of being a wicked looking fly rod, the likes of which have never before been seen. All its missing is the 24 inch rims. The Helios 2 performance is still there, the pure pleasure of casting a Helios 2 remains, but now there's some serious attitude. This small batch 9-foot 5-weight rod not only looks great, but eliminates reflection that may spook wary fish. Stealth black, no gloss, no shine. Small batch Covert Edition H2. Matte black paint with gloss black label and wraps. REC crush-proof snake guides and titanium stripping guides. Matte black rod tube with gloss black H2 trout artwork. Flor grade cork modified half-wells grip. Matte black anodized reel seat with a gloss black carbon insert. Comes with Covert aluminum rod tube and cloth sack. Backed by Orvis' 25-year guarantee. proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
