Orvis Helios 2 Big Game & Saltwater Fly Rod Reviews

Want an 8-weight top-shelf rod? Stop here. Review by Brandon

The 8-weight has some freaking backbone, man. And it's a breeze to cast.

It throws line on the flats in the wind like it's nothing (Rio 8-weight Bonefish line). It tosses big sink-tips with huge streamers effortlessly (I really like how it throws a 300-grain 24-foot Rio sink tip). The Orvis warranty is great, and this rod just looks sharp, too.

As mentioned in another review, this rod seems like it achieves a very nice balance between backbone and touch/delicacy -- something you expect when you're paying for a premium rod.

It's a fine line between being fast enough to punch 60+ft of line through the wind but having enough touch to maintain accuracy - this rod walks that line. The 8wt is absolutely fantastic.
9' for 8wt is a cannon Review by Cabster

The Helios2 in 9' for 8wt is a line hauling cannon for bonefish or streamer fishing for large fish in fresh water. Cosmetics and hardware are top shelf but I bought for performance after using a friend's at Andros.
