Orvis Helios 843-4 Review

June 8, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

In the Louisville Courier-Journal, Gary Garth takes the 8-weight Helios for a spin around local bass, panfish and trout fisheries and comes away favorably impressed. “The model I tested was the Helios 843-4; an 8-foot-4, 3-weight, 4-piece mid-flex rod (all Helios rods are available only in 4-piece), which Orvis recommends for small streams. The Helios 843-4 is everything you would expect from a high-end product with a famous pedigree.”
