Hardy Demon Spinning Rods
When choosing a game fishing Spinning Rod, you need something that will cope with a variety of lures and spinners. Ask yourself some questions: what do I like to cast for Salmon? What do I want to cast for Sea Trout? How wide is the river or loch that I am fishing? Do I like to wade? Regarding fishing line for Salmon, Trout or Sea Trout fishing, do I want to use braid, fluorocarbon or monofilament lines? If you are clear about these requirements, then choosing the right fishing rod to do the job is a lot easier.
Another important consideration is finding a rod with the right action and casting weight. For example, if you are fishing with a 9ft rod with a casting weight of 12-28g, you don't want to be casting big 40-60g lures! If the casting pressure on the rod is too high, you risk putting too much pressure on the carbon blank. However, if you are looking for a rod that is suitable for all types of freshwater lure fishing, and capable of handling big Salmon and Sea Trout, then look no further than the Hardy Demon Spinning Rod.
All carbon rods are composed of carbon fibres that are held together by a particular resin but what makes the Demon special is that Sintrix 330 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 itself. 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 Sintrix's resistance to high compression, the rod is a lot stronger.
Modern rod making technology has come a long way. For fishermen, this is amazing because what you have is a rod that is over 60% stronger than rods without Sintrix 330 nanoparticles. Even better is that you can find 330 in Demon Spin rods, giving them incredible power and durability. It takes rod power and construction to a new level, ultimately changing the way to fish. So, when it comes to fighting a big Salmon, you can be confident that the rod will be indestructible.
The Demon Spin comes in a fast taper design which describes how fast the rod bends when you put pressure on the rod tip and how fast the tip returns to its normal position - also called the 'recovery rate.' So, because the rod comes in high modulus carbon fibre, and 330, the rod is lighter but offers exceptional strength. The rod also comes with a AAA grade cork handle with a rubber stopper to give you outstanding handling and sensitivity. It comes with a full alloy reel seat for long-term durability which has two locking screws, therefore, securing your spinning reel solidly in place when playing a fish and preventing reel slippage when wet. It is a 4 section rod that offers incredible power and durability and balances perfectly with any good quality spinning reel to match. It also comes supplied in a hard rod tube to protect the rod when travelling.
Cosmetically, the rod is stunning looking with matte gunmetal grey finish and matching whippings. It also features a hook keeper ring, line-up markings to help you align the sections and rod rings correctly and Fuji Alconite guides. The Fuji guides feature a particular type of ceramic that offers 80% greater compression strength that is 20% lighter than Aluminium Oxide. They are also diamond polished for exceptional smoothness and offer super low abrasion for any line.
The range goes from an 8ft with a casting weight of 5-15g, which is ideal for fishing smaller rivers and venues with lower diameter lines and smaller lures, right up to 11ft 20-60g which is excellent for big Salmon or Sea Trout in big rivers with large lures such as Tobies, Rapalas, and Devon Minnows.
Therefore given the unmistakable durability of Sintrix technology and harnessing the incredible power of nanotechnology, you will struggle to find a better spinning rod for the money. At the back of your mind, you just need to remember that the durability of Sintrix technology will make spinning a lot easier. Easier casting and playing fish.
