SINTRIX 440 blank construction in Hardy‘s upcoming Zephrus fly rod ($649.00 -$799.00) makes it 60-percent stronger than traditional graphite fibers and provides up to a 30 percent savings in overall weight, says the company. Hardy will be presenting that new rod along with Fenwick’s lightweight glass rod, the return of the Fenglass® series ($199.99 to $249.99), at the ICAST/IFTD show which begins Wednesday in Orlando, Florida.

In addition, Hardy will bring out the new Ultralite CA DD fly reel, a large-arbor reel with aesthetic and structural improvements for serious anglers.  The CA DD body is made from aerospace-grade 6061 bar stock anodized aluminum for superior strength with a lightweight feel ($275.00 – $419.00).
