Orvis Helios 2

Discussion in 'Fish on the Fly' started by dcfisherman, Jul 16, 2017.

  1. Just upgraded to the Helios 2 from the Clearwater! However, I noticed the rod tube looks metallic and I am going to Montana in 2 weeks and I need to carry it on the plane....anyone have problems with this?
  2. No problem...worse come to worse they'll just open it up, do a test on it and you'll be on your way...when you say metallic you mean its actual metal or just looks like actual metal?

  3. I think the lid to the tube is actually metal. The actual tube feels like it but not sure
  4. I've taken mine on a couple flights no problem. I think the tube is carbon fiber or carbon and aluminum alloy. I did have one tsa open it to check, and I made sure they were aware of what was inside for proper handling.
