The Mission rods from Orvis are well-designed Spey and Switch rods made for anglers who prefer versatility and all water performance. Built with Helios 3 Technology, these rods feature a Medium-Fast action blank and accommodate a variety of casting styles. Practical features including composite cork in high-wear areas make these rods efficient and extremely durable. If you’re in the market for a new Spey rod, whether you’re a beginner or an expert, these rods are some of the smoothest on the market.
Helios 3 Technology - The Mission rods are built on the back of Helios 3 technology and construction. Orvis has built the Mission rods to have 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.
Hard Chrome Stripping Guides w/SiC Insert - Hard chrome stripping guides keep the Mission rods lightweight and functional. These guides feature a SiC insert for minimal line friction and added durability.
Hard Chrome Snake Guides - Hard chrome snake guides are a classic in contemporary fly fishing and there’s a reason most major manufacturers use these guides… they’re simple, effective, and stand up to weather and wear.
Type III Anodized Aluminum w/Double Downlocking Component - The reel seat on the Mission combines durability and craftsmanship. Grey anodized aluminum ensures maximum strength and a solid aluminum insert keeps the rod sleek and stylish. A double dowlocking component anchors large reels in place during long days on the water.
Aluminum Rod Tube - The Mission comes with an Orange rod tube that sports catchy black Orvis lettering. This Mission-specific tube protects the rod 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. Normal wear and tear, accidental breakage, misuse and mistreatment along with anything else resulting in a broken rod are all covered in the Orvis 25-Year Guarantee. No questions asked. If Orvis cannot fix your broken rod and the rod has been discontinued, they will replace it with a current rod-model of equal value.
