Their newest and best line of rods. Model 904-4 tip-flex. I built this rod four months ago. It has never been fished – never even had a reel mounted. A factory rod using less expensive components sells for over $800. I’ll sell this one for $499 cash or best offer.
No sock or tube included.
It was constructed using the finest components money can buy:
Struble nickel silver reel seat with birdseye maple insert
Struble finest grade cork grip, reverse half wells style.
Fuji religious Alloy Concept single foot guides with Silicon Carbide insert rings – these guides alone cost over $50!
Fuji fold down hook keeper
Gudebrod red ‘A’ thread, with Gudebrod red metallic thread for trim.
Two coats of Flex Coat Lite finish
The Orvis Helios is staking a claim as the world’s lightest - and best - fly rod. Compare this to the best Sage, Winston or Scott has to offer - you'll want the Orvis!
“When the rivers open up and longer casts with large mends become the order of the day, the 9-foot rod comes into its own as the rod of choice. Combined with a 4-weight line you have one of the great combinations of function and sensitivity. The Helios 904-4 Tip Flex combines extraordinary lightweight and sensitivity with remarkable power to offer the angler perhaps one of the best large stream rods ever offered. There is nothing on the market today that can compare to Helios graphite technology and the proof is in the casting. Try one now. You'll regret not trying one sooner.”
