Orvis Helios 3F Fly Rods

Orvis Helios 3F Fly Rods

Accurate from anywhere

The H3 brings us a fundamental shift from flex profiles to a new frontier in accuracy and purpose-driven design. Helios 3F and 3D each offer uncompromising purpose.

Helios 3F is accuracy with finesse.

The difference is taper and stiffness, but the design foundation of accuracy remains constant.

Designed to master the moment and meet the demands of accuracy -a dry fly angler's dream or the perfect tool for a flats angler presenting a fly 60' to weary permit.

The "F" is for feel in the Helios 3F. It's the rod for short to medium distance - out to 60 feet. You'll feel every nuance of the rod when you cast.

No cast ever thrown is identical to any other cast ever thrown. The variables of caster, rod, and conditions are too great. Helios 3F and 3D were designed to significantly reduce the variables at the point of release focusing the energy of the cast to the intended target. No matter what happens behind you the energy of the forward cast is crisply released through a tight window created by the most significant reduction in horizontal and vertical tip frequency ever conceived. It is a rifle in a world of muskets and it auto corrects the variables of the cast to the target with incomparable precision.

This was accomplished with a strategically reinforced blank that is stronger, yet remarkably has a lighter swing weight than previous Helios rods. This increased hoop strength prevents the blank from ovalizing when flexed, (see figure 2A/2B) damping the vibration as the rod unloads and the line is released forward with significantly reduced sine waves (see figure 1A/1B) taking a truer path to the target.

This increased strength also makes the Helios 3 stronger and more durable with an 85" deflection distance to breakage as compared to 54" for Helios and 72" for Helios 2. (see figure 3).
