Orvis Helios 3F Fly RodsThe Helios 3F Rod provides pin-point accuracy while maintaining the classic feel and finesse of traditional actions. The F in Helios 3F (H3F) stands for feel/finesse and this rod delivers just that, accuracy with finesse. The H3D can provide any angler with the ability to put an Adams fly in a teacup from 40 feet. The ultimate open water trout rod you can feel up to your elbow offers accuracy in tight windows, a fine touch, and responsiveness like no other rod on the market. This rod is for those anglers that want accuracy within 10 – 45 feet and a delicate presentation. The H3F gives anglers no choice but to land that size 16 Adams delicately on the water, resulting in more fish.
The Helios 3F AutocorrectNo cast ever thrown is identical to any other cast ever thrown. The variables of a cast, the person casting, the rod, conditions and desired fly placement make it impossible to make any cast thrown identical to another cast. The Helios 3F was designed to account for these variables and significantly reduce them at the point of release. This was accomplished by strategically reinforcing the blank making it stronger, yet remarkably producing a lighter swing weight than previous Helios rods. The increased hoop strength prevents the blank from ovalizing when flexed, dampening vibration as the Helios 3F unloads and line is released forward. This allows the energy of the forward cast to be crisply released through a tight window by the most significant reduction in horizontal and vertical tip frequency ever conceived creating a truer path to the target.
The Helios 3F is truly a rifle in a world of muskets when it comes to accuracy. The H3F autocorrects casting variables resulting in precise casting accuracy and ultimately more fish. Helios 3F 3-Weight, 10'6" Fly Rods offer enhanced accuracy and feel at mid-range distances. The Helios 3F 1063-4 is an exceptional nymphing rod with the length you need to control your line during longer drifts and the 3F feel and responsiveness to allow you to detect subtle takes. An extraordinarily good rod for tight line nymphing with multiple flies. No cast ever thrown is identical to any other cast ever thrown. The variables of caster, rod, and conditions are too great. Helios 3F was 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.
