I broke that rod 4 times (Orvis has a lifetime guarantee) and they fixed it for free every time. I love Orvis, they have the best customer service!
All this hype about the Helios two years ago, so when I broke it for the forth time ...... I sent some cash and upgraded to a Helios. The 2wt and 3wt are both the same weight, so I went for a 3wt this time, a 2wt might have been better?
A pond or a lake loaded with big 'gills and a UL fly rod is the ultimate fishing thrill IMHO!
Way to go with the Touch 2wt! You are going to have so much fun with that rod.
