Default Orvis Helios 8 WT Outfit ***Price Reduced*** BACK ON THE MARKET

I am selling a mint condition Orvis Helios 8wt rod with Orvis reel.

The rod is an 8 wt in mint condition. It has RR in black ink on the cork. I don't know what it means and am trying to discover that. It has no affect on the rod and doesn't bother me; but, I need to disclose everything. It is a 9 foot Tip Flex 9.5. It comes with an Orvis Rocky Mountain Turbine IV Reel. The reel currently has sinking line. Sorry I'm not sure of manufacture of the line; but, the line and reel have only been fished once. I need $500 shipped and insured. $400 shipped and insured. Let's move this thing.

The rod comes with the original Orvis sock and carbon fiber rod tube. The reel will come with the original orvis case. This is pretty much complete.

Since someone always asks, I bought this (and another) for a trip that never transpired and don't see me needing an 8 wt outfit in the future.

Whew...that was close. Glad you sold it.

I almost had to buy it. The deal was so good it was killing me to pass it up!

Buyer backed out. After not hearing from him for two days I e-mailed him and he said that he forgot he already had an 8wt Orvis Helios outfit and didn't need two.
