    Default Re: FS: Winston BIIX 9' 6wt, Orvis Helios 9' 4wt

    Look closely at the photo of the Helios. Says right on the cap that it is a mid flex not a tip flex. Granted in the Helios that means medium/fast leaning more toward the fast side. The Helios is offered in both Tip Flex(fast action) and Mid-Flex(medium action).

    Thanks Ted. I did not know and did not want to say it was when it might not be.

    It's mid-flex (marked on the rod tube cover)...so maybe not so fast?

    edit: oops I posted before reading all the posts...yup medium/fast

    Look at the first pic, it's a mid flex. That's not a fast action rod, it is a sweet medium action rod that will be the sweetest most forgiving thing you have ever casted.
