Helios 2 7-weight 10' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

This fast action 10 foot 7 wt. rod will handle roll casts flawlessly.


3⅜ oz. 10' 4-piece Tip Flex fly rod for 7-wt. line.

It's the last run of the day. Your fingers are as cold as the air outside. You've been roll casting your fast action 10-foot 7-wt. since the sun came up, waiting patiently for this moment. A mend here, a slight twitch there, and then you feel her on the end of your line. She runs upstream like a silvery ghost. You might not notice it in this moment, but as your adrenaline subsides and you come face to face with perfection, you'll be glad you had that extra foot at the end of your rod. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.

Why would we take the world's best fly rod and change it? The answer is simple. We're driven by constant improvement. Put this rod in your hands and feel the rush. You'll completely understand.

      Incredible Customer Service - 5/19/2015

      Hats off to Jim Wallace, Jake Kwapiszeski and Jessie Hollenbeck at the Rochester NY store! I purchased a 10' 7wt and the three gave me advice on the 9' vs the 10'. Always appreciate their more personable attitudes and smiles. The H2 is THE fast action rod to have! Ridiculously responsive!

      What a great rod, my first "big" buy. Outside of lying to my wife about the price...the absolute best purchase I could have ever made. Fished it multiple times now and all I can say is what a difference. I don't normally write reviews but I had to on this rod

      Exquisite, Performance, Elegance - 11/10/2013
      By: from Virginia and everywhere about with water

      25year warranty exercised due to a mishap, decided to upgrade versus repair. THE absolute best decision! Had the T3 of which performed flawless for years....but the helios2: extremely light, fast action, strong backbone. I Spent the last two weeks tossing big streamers for salmon to small nymphs for steelhead and trout. Every pickup, twitch, tic of the line was felt and handled each fish with authority. As typical with Orvis, a quality product with quality service! followed by a customer getting to yell FISH ON with exuberance and pride showing off his new toy !

      best rod ever - 2/28/2013
      By: from Portland Oregon

      I was looking for a high quality gift for a friend and had complete confidence purchasing the Helios 2. I have a Trident and after sneaking a quick feel and look at the Helios it's on my wish list also. The hand scripted ID option is worth every cent. Beautiful work.
