Default Oh Orvis, behave...

Helios 3 Shop -- Orvis UK

The bullsh1t, sorry, marketing pitch begins - There is a famous quote by Wyatt Earp, "Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything."

Althought whether Mr. Earp would have forked out £849 for a fly rod, they don't go on to say...

But looky here, people:

Helios 3

It's all about oscillation and sine waves, who knew...?

No-one is forcing you to buy it, so if someone else wants to it is none of your business.

It's about 3 to 4 times more than I would ever spend on a rod, it's not even that pleasing on the eye.

Just to be clear; am I being told by someone who's posted on here in excess of five thousand eight hundred times that I shouldn't have an opinion on something? Get you, luv.

Orvis are the kings of warranty unfortunately they are also the kings of Marketing bull ****

This isn't the first time the H2 (or was that the recon) was all about pouring over survey maps and eating granola bars

Which is a shame as I bet the rod is excellent. The H2s are.
