Orvis Helios 3D Fly Rods – Lightest, Most Accurate Rods


At Orvis, we know that when it comes to fly fishing, accuracy and distance are paramount. That’s why we designed the Helios 3D fly rod to deliver pinpoint precision at impressive distances. With reduced vibration for a consistently crisp release, increased hoop strength for added power, and the ability to churn out precise casts in all sorts of conditions, the H3D is ready for anything. Whether you’re tackling big rivers or saltwater flats, this rod has the power and accuracy to get the job done. So put your trust in the Helios 3D and fish with confidence knowing that you’ve got the right tool for the task at hand.

No cast is the same in fly fishing. The jar, stem, and condition variables are too large. Helios 3F and 3D are designed to significantly reduce variables to help you achieve your intended goal. No matter what happens behind you, the forward energy is sharply released through a narrow window created by a significant reduction in vertical and horizontal peak frequency.

It’s a rifle in a musket world, and it self-corrects target throw variables with unprecedented accuracy.
This accuracy was achieved with a strategically reinforced blank that is stronger but noticeably lighter than previous Helios rods. This increased edge strength prevents the blank from ovalizing when bending, dampens vibrations when the rod is unloaded and the line is released forward with significantly reduced sine waves…There’s more technical speak then you need to know here. Go test one for yourself and see and feel the difference.

To understand better the difference between the  3D and 3F, watch the video below.
