I have a 10' 3-weight Orvis Helios-2 blank on order and am patiently awaiting its arrival. I have built numerous 2-piece rods over the years and this will be my first 4-piece.
So I can be prepared with the right sizes of guides, and know the distances they should be placed on the blank, I have contacted Orvis on four occasions requesting that information. Once was by phone and the others were emails. In every instance my request has been completely ignored.
Does anyone out there know the guide sizes and placements the Orvis factory uses on their Helios-2 10' 3-weight?
