The Orvis Helios 3F 10 Foot 8 Weight Fly Rod was designed with the steelhead angler in mind, where controlling the line is critical, not to mention having the strength to handle the sizzling runs that steelheaders find so addictive. The Helios 3F 108-4 gives you the leverage you need to handle the constant mending as well as picking up long lengths of line off the water. Beach fishing for stripers at night is a pleasure with this rod as you can keep your backcast off the beach as well as mend exceptionally well in tidal currents. Handles big flies and sink tip fly lines. Plus, it offers superior reach and control. No matter what happens behind you, the energy of the forward cast is crisply released through a tight window created by the most significant reduction in horizontal and vertical tip frequency ever conceived. It is a rifle in a world of muskets and it auto-corrects the variables of the cast to the target with incomparable precision.
