ORVIS Helios 3 Blackout 9'5" 5wt Fly Rod
The Helios™ 3 Blackouts Have Landed
Available now, three new high-concept, supremely accurate H3 rods designed to excel in specific angling scenarios. This model services the trout angler looking for more out of his/ her 5wt...this thing can do it all!
A product of strong collaboration, the Blackout rods are high-concept, extremely specialized fishing tools—each conceptualized in a partnership between our storied guides and gear designers. New models include a scenario-specific 9'5" 5-weight, an 8'5" 8-weight boat rod, and an 11' 3-weight Euro-nymphing rod.
The Orvis Helios 3D 5-Weight Fly Rods are designed for exceptional accuracy but with enhanced power. They are the most accurate fly rods ever built, but offer remarkable strength and the ability to place a fly where you want it at distance. The Helios 3D can put a streamer on a dime at sixty feet, and when the opportunities are way out there and the windows are small, this is the rod of choice. No cast ever thrown is identical to any other cast ever thrown.
The variables of caster, rod, and conditions are too great. Helios 3D 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 auto-corrects the variables of the cast to the target with incomparable precision.
