Default Re: Any experience with Orvis Helios / Hardy Sintrix??

As the rep I haven't had the privilege of throwing the 8-3. But I had an 8-4 sample for quite a while and while the rod was very comparable to my Winston TMF in close. But the more line you get out the stronger it feels. Wether you need this in 3 weight dry fly rod is debatable. But I suspect that that extra reserve will show some advantages roll casting, and probably extend the usability of the rod on windy days. I personally only own one 3 weight (an old Hardy glass for small creek work). I use to own two others (a Winston LT 8'9" and Scott G 9") But wind was always the great foil that kept my three weights in the quiver.
