Details
5¾ oz. 8'6", 4-piece, Tip Flex fly rod for 14-wt. line.

The water surrounding the boat is as blue as the rod in your hands. How deep it is, you have no idea. A warm tropical wind races through the air, spreading around the crisp scent of the sea. Your fly looks like a dashboard hula dancer, a fluorescent wig tied to a hook the size of your palm. Primal beasts rise from the depths, slashing at the offering with pure anger, not an ounce of hesitation coursing through their muscles. A sailfish latches onto your fly, and with the high-pitched scream of your reel as a soundtrack, leaps to the sun in blue and gold flashes, its eyes focused on you. He's your Goliath. The 14-weight, 8'6 Helios 2 is your slingshot. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.

Why would we take the world's best fly rod and change it? The answer is simple. We're driven by constant improvement. Put this rod in your hands and feel the rush. You'll completely understand.

  • 20% stronger than the original Helios
  • 20% lighter in hand
  • 100% increase in tip-impact strength
  • Fine-tuned tapers for unrivaled tracking, accuracy, and lifting power
