Orvis Helios 3 fly rod
RRP from £849 www.orvis.co.uk
The successor to the popular Helios 2 has a lot to live up to, but Orvis is certainly confident, billing it as “the most accurate rod on the planet” and perhaps with good reason. We got our hands on it at this year’s Game Fair and were certainly impressed. The new graphite fibre is denser, offering a quicker recovery rate, while each section is hand-tuned to maximise energy transfer.
