Wait until you get one of these in your hands and cast it! The Hardy Zephrus series of fly rods features the award-winning Sintrix 440 material. Experience high recovery, great hand feel in a fast action rod, and superior line control. When we first cast these rods we were really blown away by the smooth precision, speed, lightness and resilience –not to mention the gorgeous cosmetics.
SINTRIX 440 Technology - Hardy’s SINTRIX technology has been around since 2009. The second iteration, SINTRIX 440, means the Zephrus Ultralite is up to 30% lighter than traditional carbon fiber rods. SINTRIX 440 also increases the comprehensive strength of the Zephrus Ultralite by up to 60%. SINTRIX mixes microscopic silica spheres to make an adhesive resin that’s resistant to pressure and compression from all angles. As a result, the Zephrus Ultralite is more powerful and high performing than the Hardy fly rods of the past.
REC Recoil Guides - REC Recoil guides are extremely lightweight and highly practical. Don’t worry about banging or bending your guides. If bent, recoil guides bounce back into place without warping.
Black Pearl Recoil Guides - Similarly, black pearl recoil guides also rebound when bent or crushed. These guides decrease the overall rod weight for lightweight performance and durability.
Custom Ultralight Reel Seat - True to its name, the reel seat of the Ultralite is designed to keep the rod lightweight. A burlwood insert is cut and replaced by composite cork leaving the rod blank exposed to decrease weight. The reel seat is stylish and incredibly unique.
Aluminum Rod Tube - The Zephrus Ultralite comes in a classic silver aluminum Hardy rod tube. These tubes are ultra-durable and super stylish for functionality and purpose.
Hardy Worldwide Extended Warranty - Hardy’s warranty covers repair or replacement of damaged, broken, or defective sections of the fly rod for the lifetime of the product. As of 4/17/2019, rods manufactured after 2002 require a $75 fee for repairs, handling, administration, and return postage.
