Why is SINTRIX so Special?3m developed a revolutionary base resin for the aerospace industry which Hardy & Greys have adapted, to create a unique material called SINTRIX that is exclusive to them. They have looked at the inherent weaknesses of the resin that holds the carbon fibres in place within a rod blank and introduced 'Nano Particles' throughout the resin. These particles are blended within the resin to hold the carbon fibres in parallel alignment. SINTRIX's enhanced matrix resin supports and bolsters the carbon fibres in the rod blank to withstand an even higher degree of bending and loading than today's modern rods. With SINTRIX, if a microscopic weak spot were to appear in the blank, the special 'nano particles' in the SINTRIX resin simply just 'click in' to their neighbouring particles and stops the weakness occurring.
Benefits of SINTRIXA rod that can bend further than any other rod on the market. It also creates a rod that offers phenomenal strength and durability, is lighter, more responsive, can recover quicker, and has huge reserves of power. Steve Paterson of Hardy & Greys explains that: "these are blanks so thin, they can cut through the wind." They also have significantly improved impact resistance over conventional carbon fibre rod design (so that doesn't mean you see if it will withstand the car door slamming shut on it). It simply means that it will take accidental bumps and scrapes better.
Initially the material will be used in Hardy Fly rods, so the SINTRIX single handed rods will be available in January 2011. Chris Bond of Hardy & Greys states that: "Our aim is that in five years, 60-70% of Hardy & Greys rod volume will be built with SINTRIX."
