Product Description

Hardy Zephrus Double Handed Salmon Fly Rod

When the Hardy Zenith Sintrix rod series emerged with revolutionary nano resin that offered up to 30% increase in compression strength over traditional carbon fibre, it was considered "indestructible." During testing, fly rods underwent extreme pressure to see where the point of failure was. Rods bent over double, spinning rods undergoing stress tests. Each trial was seeking to confirm the belief that no other rod could stand up to such punishment. However, in true Hardy tradition, there is never any room for complacency, so the boundaries have moved. The result was Sintrix 440 which not only doubled the compression strength of 330 but also reduced the weight by 30% over traditional carbon fibre rods. With this discovery, the old Hardy Zenith fly rod range was superceded with the new Hardy Zephrus range of fly rods in the 440 Sintrix configuration.

All carbon rods are composed of carbon fibres that are held together by a particular resin but what makes the Zephrus special is that Sintrix 440 resin covers the carbon. Hardy was the first fishing company to introduce Sintrix technology in its resins. It was developed by 3M and is a unique material which has silica nanospheres mixed with the resin mixture. The nanoparticles or spheres evenly surround every individual carbon fibre filament, substantially encapsulating the rod blank in a network of strength. As this protects the carbon, the silica particles can resist pressure, twisting and high compression so when the rod is bent to its extremities, the force is absorbed by the nanoparticles which make the underlying carbon structure stronger; not weaker. So because of Sintrixs' resistance to high compression, the rod is a lot stronger.

The Zephrus Double hand series comes in a new range of sizes to cover more fishing situations. The 11ft double hand switch rod is perfect for smaller waters that require lighter lines and delicate presentations. In contrast, the 15ft 1 inch in an AFTM 10/11 is capable of fishing the biggest Salmon rivers where long lines are a must.

One of the most salient features of this new range is the reduction of weight in the tip section and better in-hand feel when you pick the rod up. This aids rod tip recovery significantly during the casting stroke allowing you to transfer the maximum amount of energy through to your Spey or shooting head fly line. The rod is also easier to flex in the butt section, so this gives you more 'line feel' and dramatically improves your casting stroke. So, in essence, this new rod is a lot more user-friendly than its predecessor.

What you have in this double handed fly rod is the perfect combination of power and strength. It has massively expanded and improved to make it the best DH salmon fly rod on the market. Concerning casting the rod, because of its exceptional recovery rate, strength, and lightness, you can expect easy loading and unloading and excellent rod tip control. By controlling the rod tip speed and understanding the dynamics of casting you can control the shape of your cast easily.

As fly rods go, the Hardy Zephrus range offers strength power and finesse covering all two-handed rod applications from small freestone streams to mighty spate rivers. Cosmetically, the rod features a Titanium Nitride intermediate guides and a Fuji Titanium stripper guide, AAAA cork handle, hard anodised looking reel seat and a carbon spacer that helps reduce the weight of the rod.
