ORVIS Helios 3 Launch from Robin C on Vimeo.
Having been to the rod factory before and meeting those in this video makes you really appreciate the amount of work that goes into the creation of these fine fly rods. I will be picking up one of these H3 rods soon and hit the water with it. What I really enjoy about these rods is the way they track and I think that has been something that Orvis has continued to improve each time they make a new Helios. You will see an example of it in the video above, but I feel that it is very noticeable to an experienced fly caster. This will in turn, help beginners as well since there will be less side to side vibration and enhance the feel in the cast. I have owned some prior generations of Helios fly rods. They are machines on the water.
