Over-Engineered Is an Understatement

For Orvis rod designers, “over-engineered” is no dig; it’s a recognition that Helios performs far beyond the normal limits of a fly rod. Our mission to raise the world standard for accuracy comes with a commitment that every performance characteristic and component of the all-new Helios exceeds expectations.

Muscle & Mettle

Increased travel distance means more lifting power when a fish runs under the boat or thrashes at the net. Fight those last moments with confidence.

25% STRONGER THAN HELIOS 3

“Very powerful and strong for such a light rod. I pulled on some big tarpon, striped marlin, giant trevally, grouper, snapper, and it performed great. In some cases, I tried to break it and did not.”
