Just tried it today on a local river. Casts like a dream! Would highly recommend

I got this rod late in the season, but managed to test it on streams in the Roros district fishing for greyling. The rod is precise, easy to cast, light in the hand, and it casts very long and at the same time very delicate presentations of my flies. I am very satisfied with the purchase, and will recommend the rod to my fly fishing friends.

I've been using an Access 5 weight for a few years now. My last trip to Montana taught me that I need a 6 weight. The first time I used this new Helios2 I knew I made the right choice. The rod feels like a fine tool and the reel is perfect. I can see many years of great fishing with this rig.
