Hardy Zephrus Fly Rod
Zenith and Proaxis rods, the Hardy Zephrus - not to be confused with the Hardy Zephyrus which was a glass fibre fly rod produced for the Japanese market in the late 1990's! The new Zephrus rods come in three distinct ranges, reminiscent of a few American fly rod ranges; a freshwater series (FWS), saltwater series (SWS) and all-water series (AWS). With 33 rods in total there is a Zephrus fly rod for everyone, and if you liked the Zenith at all you will love the Zephrus - it was hard to believe you could improve on the Zenith but as soon as you pick up the Zephrus it feels light years ahead! Lighter and crisper actioned, with cosmetics close to its predecessor but just different enough.
Zephrus range as the evolution of carbon fibre rod technology, 60% stronger than traditional carbon fly rods and up to 30% lighter. The refined medium to fast action blank has reserve power when needed and gives incredible line feel when casting. Light in the hand, the 8-foot freshwater rod weighs only 2.5 ounces! The 4 piece freshwater blanks are finished in olive and the saltwater rods (including five 1 piece models) in blue and both are fitted with lightweight REC black pearl recoil guides with Fuji titanium strippers for optimum weight savings, durability and casting distance. Selected hardwood or triaxial carbon spacers add a touch of class to the custom reel seat on the Zephrus rod range.

Hardy Ultralite CA DD Fly Reel
Hardy Ultralite MA DD Fly Reel
The new Ultralite MA DD reel series from Hardy shares most of its features with the new CA DD reels but has a Mid-Arbor design that it aimed at the angler who wants that little more capacity for line or backing for tageting bigger fish or perhaps for an application that require more space on a fly reel such as Switch rods and Pike fly rods. It shares the same great new drag system and comes in 5 different sizes.
