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

My understanding is that Orvis will retire the original ZG Helios models gradually as they introduce the equivalent new Helios 2 models. They are still in the middle of the changeover, with some H2 models already on the market and others not yet released. But yes, the gold ZG Helios reel seats are being replaced by "black nickel" reel seats in the H2 models. So if you want a gold reel seat, buy an original ZG Helios rod while supplies last.
