You can read all about it here: http://www.orvis.com/store/product....758&group_id=759&cat_id=14923&subcat_id=14458 I have a brand spanking new, never out of the tube and sock, Orvis Helios 5wt, 9' tip flex 9.5 rod. $795 retail, you could have this one for $650. I hate to say that there is nothing that I'm really in need of, but if you have an interesting trade to consider, please let me know. (I do not have a Sage Z Axis single hander in 6, 7, or 8wt) If I did not already have a quiver full of 5wt rods I'd be keeping this one for myself. Thanks.
