Accuracy is everything
It’s no secret that fly fishing is a game of inches. There are so many factors that can throw off your cast and the Orvis Helios 3 is on a mission to silence the variables. With almost autocorrect-like properties, the H3 provides un-compromised accuracy. Through a reinforced blank with a greater hoop strength, the rod won’t oval when under pressure thus dampening the vibration and reducing tip frequency as the rod unloads. A truer path to the target is the end result.
The reinforced blank also adds strength, meaning more pulling and hauling power. With the D in 3D standing for distance, the Helios 3D model is the faster rod for shooting long and true in windy saltwater and warmwater conditions.
