Helios 2 5-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

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

Details

2½ oz. 9', 4-piece, Tip-Flex fly rod for 5-wt. line.

There may not be many truths in fly fishing, but here is one: you can't catch a fish if you can't get a fly in front of it. Thanks to the most accurate and versatile 5-weight we've ever created, that problem will disappear forever. Whether you're slinging lead toward an undercut bank or dropping tricos in a glass-calm tailout from 50 feet away, the 905-4 Helios 2 will perform with precision, sensitivity, and brute force when necessary. Lighter in hand and stronger than the original Helios, you'll be able to fish longer, fish harder, and feel the difference a superior rod makes. 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
