3¼ oz. 10', 4-piece, Tip-Flex fly rod for 8-wt. line.
We set out on an adventure to make the world's lightest fly fishing rod. Along the way, we also made the world's best.
Whether using sophisticated Czech nymphing techniques or mending long lines across multiple currents, the Helios 10-foot 5-weight Tip Flex is easily one of the most effective rods you will use for tough, specialized presentations. That extra foot gives you the ability to reach out, and the leverage to pick up line on the water and move it unlike any previous 10-foot model. The extreme lightweight Helios graphite makes it easy to handle all day and will significantly reduce the strain on your arms when reaching, high sticking, and mending hour after hour. This is a spectacular rod for float tubers and pontoon anglers as it keeps the back cast high and off the water. As a 5-weight rod, it can easily handle even the largest trout and is a must-have rod for big water trout anglers and even light steelheaders.
