I took my new Helios to the Laurel yesterday to fish it for the fist time. I don't like it! I have a 9' 5wt midflex. It is light weight but still very fast. I thought the midflex would be a little slower than it is.

Talk to Orvis, they may help. You can also try up-lining it a line weight or two to slow it down.

hmm, i had the mid 904, to blame slow, had to get rid of it. I agree with Peddler, call Orvis & tell them, they should b e wiling to work with you.
