Default Re: Orvis H2

Unfortunately, I am unable to go and cast the new H2's as none are close to me. I have been trying to do as much research on them as I can and am really confused. I sold my Sage One 9' 5 wt because it was too stiff to be a good dry fly rod and really did not throw well under 40' even if overlined. I like faster rods, but want a little softer tip to make it a little more dry fly/tippet friendly. I have contacted 3-4 shops that have gotten to fish with the new tip flex H2 and all of them tell me that the rod is as stiff or stiffer than the Sage One and do not recommend it as a dry fly rod.

Contradicts what you guys are saying that the tip flex has a softer tip like the Zeniths. Not saying anyone is right or wrong, just trying to figure it all out.
