Orvis 5 wt. Helios. The lightest fly rod in the world! Rod was sent to me after breaking an older model. I fished the rod for about 20 minutes and realized it was too stiff for my taste. Rod is a tip flex 9.5, 9 foot, 2 3/8 oz. I hate to see it go, but it simply is not the rod for me. Asking $600. This rod retails for 750.

Send it back tell them you want the mid flex and they will have no problem sending you one! I did the same thing. The mid flex is sweet there's alot feel in that rod but you can still throw the whole line with a flick of the wrist.

break it, tell them to send you a 4 wt mid flex and swap me for a z axis 5 wt that's been used 3-4 times.

The only thing I'd accept as trade for that rod would be a night with Fox news Megan Kelly if you can set that up for me you got a deal!

Oh sweet Megan!

Thanks for the advice everyone. Im going to stick with Megan Kelly, but i would like to know about the trade for kramer the dog.... is it a German short hair? That would be a trade Im ok with if it can hunt. other wise, its a sweet rod, and perfect for someone who wants to throw some line. Its a great all-round rod, just needs a good caster. So I will be waiting here with Megan, who is not available, let me know if you are interested.
