    Orvis Helios 2 Switch Fly Rod Reviews

    Simply the Best Review by TenaciousP

    I have the 11' 6wt. I moved my Rio Switch Chucker 6wt line onto this rod. It is a perfect match at 420gr. This is without a doubt my favorite rig for small to medium steelhead. It might be my favorite outfit overall. It is plain fun to fish.

    The rod is so light. It has a fast action. It really has a ton of casting and fighting power. Its hard to believe because the rod just feels so light. This spring I landed many steelies ranging from creek chrome to 30". So far the rod seems durable (and you have Orvis to back it up.)

    My primary use is swinging small to medium water with no tip or MOW light tips. I have also nymphed with it. It's just great. Keep in mind its a switch rod... If you want a switch, look no farther.

    Huge fan of the H2. I worked at an Orvis in Ohio for a while and after a while, I decided to get into Spey casting for chrome. I figured I might as well take advantage of the discount while I could and it was a great decision. Fast action, strong but you can make delicate presentations if you want. You wont regret it. And by the way, the original Helios is pictured in the details section, not the H2.
