Thanks guys.
I thought the ZGs and ZG Helios were unbeatable. The Helios 2 is mind blowing.
Got supplies for making shooting heads for this weight on the way.

My Orvis Clearwater 8 weight is 1.25 oz heavier than the 10 weight Helios 2.

That's a sweet rod! Good choice on the 10wt. for ski's. Definitely more versatile and less troublesome on the shoulders.

Which reel will you be running?
