The Helios 3D is Orvis’ flagship saltwater rod built for distance casting in windy conditions. The rod’s fast action blank and Helios 3 technology combine increased rod strength for quicker recovery rates and faster line speeds. For anglers who often find themselves struggling to throw big flies into a heavy wind, the Helios 3D has the backbone and the power to get the job done. This is a great rod for technical conditions, serious distance casting, and any saltwater fly fishing scenario.


Helios 3 Technology - The all-new blank of the Helios 3D is designed to be accurate from anywhere. The 3D is made with vibration dampening technology and extreme rod durability. ‘D’ stands for distance and the blank of the 3D is strong and fast, great for throwing big flies in windy conditions. Orvis has built a strategically reinforced rod blank to maximize strength without increased overall weight. Helios 3 tech creates a blank that tracks beautifully, takes a truer path to the target, and can land a fly accurately from anywhere.


SiC/Titanium Stripping Guides - Titanium stripping guides bring modern durability to the 3D. SiC guides accommodate a variety of fly lines and stand up to harsh weather and harsh environments.

REC Recoil Snake Guides - Recoil snake guides help keep the 3D lightweight and rebound when bent or crushed. Snake guides are also functional and their design is widely-used in contemporary fly fishing.

Reel Seat

Type III Anodized Aluminum w/Carbon Insert - The reel seat on the 3D combines durability and craftsmanship. Midnight black type III anodized aluminum ensures maximum strength and a matte storm carbon insert keeps the rod sleek and stylish. A double uplocking component anchors large reels in place during long days on the water.

Rod Tube

Aluminum Rod Tube - The H3 comes with a white rod tube that sports catchy black Orvis lettering. This Helios-specific tube protects the H3D on the water and during travel and storage.


The Orvis 25-Year Guarantee - As of 5/8/2019, Orvis rods fall under the one-of-a-kind Orvis Guarantee. If broken within a quarter-century of purchase, Orvis vows to fix your rod. If they cannot fix the rod, Orvis will replace it regardless of circumstance.
