New Hardy Fly Fishing Gear for 2018 - Special Preview!

We always look forward to those first glimpses at the new fishing gear from Hardy at this time of year and once again the new additions for next years range will blow you away!
2018 will be the year that you will see the first ever carbon hybrid fly reel from Hardy, the use of the game changing SINTRIX material in every single hardy rod on the market - not just at the top end - and a great new lower price point in rods. Plus a comeback from some of the favourite Hardy names of the past like ultralite and Demon rods and the Cascapedia reels and a complete new range of fly lines!
It's going to be a big year for Hardy and you can see, try and buy almost all of the new stuff for the very first time at the Glasgow Angling Centre Open Weekend Event on the last weekend of September 2017, plus you can meet with and chat to the guys who helped design and develop it who can answer all of your questions! But first let us introduce you to some of the new gear...
Hardy Ultralite MTX Fly Reel
Leading the pack with a new bench mark in reel design the Hardy Ultralite MTX is Hardy's first fly reel to feature a hybrid carbon fibre/alloy reel cage. This strong, light and stunning reel features a powerful carbon fibre drag system with a 340 degree colour coded regulator, captive spool release and high line capacity. As soon as we held this reel in our hand we knew Hardy were onto a winner with this one and we were surprised at the price tag - much less than expected for such a high performance piece of kit!
Available in three sizes - 3000 (#3/4/5), 5000 (#5/6/7) and 7000 (#7/8/9) with prices starting at just £379.99 the new Hardy Ultralite MTX Fly Reel is available to Pre-Order now from Glasgow and Edinburgh Angling Centres both instore and online HERE!
Hardy SDSL Fly Reel
A stunning new addition to the Hardy saltwater reel line up, the SDSL series of reels is machined from 6061 Alloy and is sure to be a favourite with Salmon anglers too! Featuring a fully sealed carbon fibre disc drag system capable of generating up to 16lb of pressure, controlled by a 340 degree colour coded regulator, these offer the big fish angler an incredibly strong yet maintenance free reel. The full barstock frame and spool of the Hardy SDSL reel is also lightweight enough for long days on the water and features a stunning silver and blue colour scheme and captive spool release system. There hasn't been a Hardy saltwater fly reel as impressive as this since the bestselling Zane series - and we fully expect the Hardy SDSL to outsell all of it's predecessors!

Made in Alnwick, England the two smaller sizes feature a classic click check system whilst the larger models feature a fully functioning disc drag with an inbuilt audible clicker to give that classic Cascapedia sound - the music! The new Hardy Cascapedia gets it strength from its fully machined barstock frame and retains the classic S shape handle from the original reel.
