An exceptionally accurate, lightweight, and versatile fly rod, the Helios 3F is Orvis’s flagship rod with a moderate action (as opposed to the fast action on the 3D). With a variety of rod weights and lengths, the Helios 3F can accommodate a variety of casting styles and will suit experienced anglers who prefer a moderate action for more delicate presentations.
- 3F Accuracy – Compared to the other Helios model (the 3D), the 3F is designed for accurate casting and delicate presentations.
- Moderate Action – The Helios’s action is less rigid and more forgiving than the fast action of the 3D, making it better suited for dry fly or lightweight nymph applications where accuracy is key. It may suffer a bit with heavy streamer rigs on windy days.
- Titanium Stripping Guides w/ SiC Inserts – With Orvis’s premium rods come premium components, such as titanium stripping guides for lightweight durability and silicon carbide (SiC) cup inserts for excellent line shootability.
- Orvis 25 Year Guarantee – Orvis has an excellent warranty program with a “no questions asked” guarantee that will repair or replace broken fly rods for a minimal handling fee.
