Ask Curated a question about this product:

The Orvis® Mission Spey and Switch rods are built in the U.S. using Helios™ 3 technology with a medium-fast-action blank to accommodate a wide variety of casting styles. This series of rods comes in a wide variety of sizes and weights to fit every angler’s style and fishing locale, whether that is fishing in tight spots or big water. The rods provide excellent line control and are offered in four- or six-piece designs.

Key Features

  • Orvis 25-year Guarantee – This warranty provides peace of mind for the lifetime of your rod.
  • Chrome SiC Stripping Guide & Snake Guides – The hard chrome striping snake guides provide minimal friction and added durability while keeping the rods lightweight.
  • Type III Anodized-aluminum Reel Seat – The anodized reel seat comes with a double-downlocking component to keep the reel solidly in place while keeping the reel seat protected from the elements when fishing all day.
  • Helios 3 Technology – The Mission rods use the Helios 3 technology to create a blank that tracks straight to the target to accurately land a fly where intended.
  • Rod Tube – The Mission comes with an orange rod tube to protect the rod while in storage and during travel.

Use Cases

I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

I bought an open box Orvis fishing rod and it was at a great price. The condition of the rod and the shipping time exceeded my expectations. The information I received from Capt. Mark was accurate and helpful. I would definitely buy from Curated again.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
