Helios 2 8-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

The Helios 2 is the best fly rod the world has ever seen.

Details

3¼ oz. 9', 4-piece, Tip-Flex fly rod for 8-wt. line.

The wind swirls across the flat as the sun blasts you from above. A silvery streak flickers beneath the surface. This is your one shot. Make it count. Make sure you're fishing the Helios 2. Strong, light in the hand, and deadly accurate, the 908-4 Helios 2 is the most complete and versatile big-game fly rod we've ever produced. Swing for salmon in brisk weather or toss Crazy Charlies in tropic heat; the H2 doesn't care. He's hungry for big flies, big water, and even bigger fish. Give him what he wants. 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.

  • 20% stronger than the original Helios
  • 20% lighter in hand
  • 100% increase in tip-impact strength
  • Fine-tuned tapers for unrivaled tracking, accuracy, and lifting power
