Product Description

Unmatched Accuracy, Now Offered in Two Flavors! 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 autocorrects 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, damping the vibration as the rod unloads and the line is released forward with significantly reduced sine waves 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.

Incredible power, deadly accuracy, and impressive feel are part and parcel of the Helios 3F fly rods. Not only has Orvis built a super lightweight rod in the Helios 3, but it also offers a crisp feel in hand for an unbeatable casting experience. Accuracy is important. Hurling a fly across the water and hoping for a strike won’t win any trophies—it’s those accurate drops that bring in the real prize. The difference of a couple of inches can make or break a catch. The Helios 3F reduces the variables and harnesses the energy behind each cast for enhanced accuracy, so you can reach the far bank and drop a fly with precision every time. Orvis has checked unbeatable accuracy and power off the list, but the H3F also delivers the finesse required to delicately drop a fly without spooking fish, and it has plenty of backbone to haul in the big fish of your dreams without flinching. Whether you’re chasing bonefish on the flats or casting streamers to the far bank, the Helios 3F offers the outstanding casting performance and responsiveness you need to land more fish.
