Hello,

I also compared the weight aspect between the helios and the zenith before I bought them. And my take is that don't let the slight weight difference keep you away from a good rod regardless which one that you eventually pick.

Again, based on the 7wt not the 3wt.

The helios 7wt is 2 7/8oz which is 2.87oz, the Zenith 7wt is 3.24oz or 3 1/4oz, the difference is only 0.37oz. Add the reel, backing and fly line and I can't feel that 0.37oz.
It is like comparing Michael Ballack to Mezut Ozil, different size but just as good.


By the way, Orvis Superfine Full Flex is a good addition to your short list.

Me personally will take on Tenkara if I had to fish that light.
