I guess he's taking the secret to the grave. If you want to know how it was.... you'll have to go find one and cast it.

I just hope he didn't capsize the SS Tweed.

They only come in a 13.5', 3 weight model. No use to me. I'll have to wait for the "two" to come out.

I hope they follow the orvis model and offer a less obscenely priced model with the same performance, as is the case with helios v hydros. I think orvis has proven that there are plenty of people out there that will pay the markup to get the "top of the line" regardless of cheaper alternatives that perform just as well.

They can call it "THE ONE-B"

regarding the hydros / helios, they are two completely different rods built on different blanks. I'm sure they are both great rods, and may even feel similar, but the idea that they are the same blanks with different hardware is a myth. The way they are marketed by orvis plays into this myth. Not saying one rod is better than the other, but you can buy either a hydros or helios blank. When sage introduced the VXP there were similar rumors (to the helios / hydros rumor) that it was the same as an XP.

You're going to have to provide a source, because that's not the case according to everything I've heard, including from good friends at orvis.

Edit: I've found mention that the blanks were merely "similar", or built with the same technology, but it's heresay just the same.

The rods feel identical to me, and that's the crux of the point I was making, which still holds imo.

Edit again: Editing my above post to say "blank design/technology" instead of blank would be certifiably true according to what I am finding. The jury is still out on whether the blank is the same.

Here you go:

If they feel identical to you, that is all that matters. Rod price seems to correlate directly with higher modulus (newer generation) graphite, but that doesn't equate to how good the rod is to the end user. Case in point, I prefer my 10+ year old St Croix imperial 904 to legend and legend elite 904s.

Ya, looks like the Hydros blank weight is double that of the Helios.
