Default Re: Orvis H2

I have yet to cast the new H2 either. In all fairness I was somewhat unimpressed by Helios to begin with. I am fundamentally a dry fly trout angler and the Sage ONE #5 is a superb dry fly rod with a straight 5-weight RIO Gold. I happen to love the Hardy Zenith too which does have a softer tip and that might suite your style better. It is the ONE's scalpel-like tip that gives it such an edge over its competition; impeccably precise control. It is the angler's line handling which protects the tippet not the shock absorption property of a soft tip.
