They replace the Access line. They were shown at the FFing show, but not yet available for sale.

As previously stated, it does replace the Access. It's a bit stiffer of a rod than the Helios, but performs quite nicely, though I'd say a little less forgiving. 2.6oz in the 5wt, makes it nice and light as well.

More sections to a rod mean more things that can go wrong. I like the idea just need a backup two or four section rod for traveling. But for driving to a local spot just pull it out and string it up. I rarely break down my rods anyway.
