Helios 3F 8-Weight, 10' Fly Rods offer enhanced accuracy and feel at mid-range distances. For the steelhead angler, controlling the line is critical, not to mention having the strength to handle the sizzling runs that steelheaders find so addictive. Here is your answer. 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 sinking lines plus offers superior reach and control. No cast ever thrown is identical to any other cast ever thrown. The variables of caster, rod, and conditions are too great. Helios 3F was designed to significantly reduce the variables at the point of release, focusing the energy of the cast to the intended target. 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 autocorrects the variables of the cast to the target with incomparable precision.
