The H2 is an enhanced Helios rod that is light in the hand, highly accurate and incredibly strong. To increase the precision casting capabilities, Orvis reduced the dampening properties by altering how the fibers and resin systems are combined in order to achieve a specific taper using its patented thermoplastic technology. In addition, the H2 tip now has double the impact strength. This added strength didn't come from any new space-age material, but instead the builders relied on a top-secret additive. Available from 2- to 12-weight, an H2 is out there to cover you in your favorite fishing situation.
