    For single hand 10' fly rods buying the high end or top of the line makes sense.


    They tried 10' single hand rods ~30 years ago and they were just too heavy.

    The G.Loomis IMX and GLX 10' 2 piece series were the first 10' single hand fly rods that were light enough.



    These Orvis Helios fly rods are super light.

    With a new full length single hand Spey line this would be a good steelhead rod.

    Bill, I agree. I bought it with the intention of that, along with Pyramid Lake shore fishing. It just doesn’t see as much use as a rod like this should. I think it’s been out twice!
