Thread: Helios Switch Rods - 50% off this weekend

  1. Default Helios Switch Rods - 50% off this weekend

    I guess Orvis are gearing up to kill off the Helios switch in favor of H2 switch.

    They offering 50% off Helios switch rods this weekend in 5, 6, 8, 9, 10.

    Seems like a lot of rod for $462.

    Out of the line weights listed above, i am considering the 6 or 8. Would the 6 be OK for steelhead, sea trout in the UK and small atlantic salmon/grilse? Or am i better getting the 8?

    Ive never even cast a 2 handed rod, but think it might be fun to learn in case the opportunity arises to go after the species above.

    I'm slightly drawn to the 6, purely as i have a Mirage IV, which would fit it nicely. But owning a reel that would fit is not the best reason to buy a rod.

    It seens wrong that those are 50% off and still out of my price range... Lol

    Super sweet rods though
