Orvis Helios 3

I’ve had the opportunity to get my hands in 2 of the new Orvis H3 8 weight. I have the D which stands for distance and the F which is Feel. Both are incredible Ross and a pleasure to cast. They both live up to their name very well. The D is a cannon while still retaining enough feel to make very accurate presentations. The F is much softer and a real pleasure to cast. At closer ranges and tight quarters it is amazing. It is a more relaxed taper but by no means is it not a high performance rod. I wouldn’t hesitate using either in any situation. Get your hands on them and cast both. You will be very pleased.
