SINTRIX® TECHNOLOGY: IT’S THE SMALL THINGS THAT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE. Never has that statement held more truth than with the development of SINTRIX® technology. All carbon rods utilise carbon fibres that are bonded together by an adhesive resin. The resin material used in SINTRIX® is produced by 3M®, it is a unique and patented material incorporating silica nano spheres which provides two distinct benefits.

Microscopic silica spheres evenly surround every individual carbon fibre filament providing a matrix of strength throughout the rod.

Firstly the microscopic silica spheres are able to evenly surround every individual carbon fibre filament providing a matrix of strength throughout the rod. Secondly, being spherical, the silica particles are able to resist pressure and compression from any angle. This is particularly important because it is under compression forces, on the underside of a bent rod, rather than tension forces, on the outside of the curve, that carbon fibre is most likely to weaken and potentially break. So by resisting compression better, SINTRIX® rods are stronger.

In developing SINTRIX® our specialist composite engineers and rod designers spent over two years experimenting with different types, and mixes, of carbon fibres combined with varying levels of 3M® nano silica resin. They also discovered that the normal manufacturing processes associated with carbon fibre rods had to be significantly changed in order to get the best from the new 3M® resin material. The final results were astonishing with up to 60% increases in strength and up to 30% savings in weight. Driven by our passion and determination to always push the boundaries—part of Hardy’s DNA since 1872—we offer varying levels of SINTRIX® technology across our rod range, each level brings significant and tangible benefits over traditional carbon fibre construction.


SINTRIX®: THE SUCCESS STORY. When I received the first prototype blanks rolled from SINTRIX® material in late 2009 I was shocked. I’ve held and flexed literally thousands of rod blanks over the years, and when I held the 9ft #10 saltwater rod, I was immediately taken aback at the lack of weight for a #10 – it just instantly felt ‘right’.

My rods of choice when chasing the huge Pike of Chew Valley, pursuing Gold representing England competitively or filming saltwater fishing adventures have one thing in common—they all feature SINTRIX® material. This revolutionary technology has changed the way I approach the diverse challenges of my lifelong passion.

It seems like a no-brainer now but the introduction of SINTRIX® was a bold step. It seemed dull, a little geeky, I was sceptical that a better resin system could be exciting, could change rods, could make better rods, but it does. Hardy engineers and designers neatly and expertly anticipated exactly how important SINTRIX® would be for the future of their fishing rods... and, by the way, set the direction for performance rod design in general.

John Horsey, Professional Guide

Magnus Angus, Chief Reviewer Fly Fishing & Fly Tying Magazine

Our early work on the material with our sister company Hardy Advanced Composites had indicated considerable increases in compressive strength and impact resistance where possible, but even our material engineers were not prepared for the results. Following the first day of testing, we even asked the manufacturer of our compressive strength tester to re-calibrate the machine as the results it had produced were, to quote one of our testers, “nonsense”. There was nothing wrong with the testing machine, the blanks netted out at close to 60% stronger than our calculations suggested they ought to be, and from that point on the entire team focused on the development of what became the Zenith and Proaxis series of rods and the refinement of what was to become SINTRIX® technology. I could tell you about the testing trips to the Florida Keys fishing for sharks with medium-weight Trout rods, or the actual fist fight that took place on the dockside between two guides over a test rod, but I think some of these quotes from icons and pioneers in the sport tell the impact that SINTRIX® actually made far better than I could. Howard Croston, Hardy Product Manager and England International.

The ultra-lightweight and incredible strength of the Hardy SINTRIX® rods give me the superb line handling that I need to achieve absolute control of line placement and mending, while also allowing me to fight the fish aggressively and remain in perfect touch with every part of the line/leader system. Gary Borger, Hardy North American ProTeam Member

FRESHWATER, ALL WATER AND SALTWATER Tactical and Extreme A number of Hardy rods within our series feature T or E designations. T designated rods are designed with highly tactical situations in mind where a careful combination of line feel, recovery and carefully calibrated blank stiffness are required to meet specific challenges.

Rods designated with an E are typically more at the 'extreme' end of the scale where ultrafast actions and high recovery are specifically required.

Freshwater (FWS)

All water (AWS)

Saltwater (SWS)

FWS or "Freshwater series" rods feature selected wood spacers, refined handle designs and carefully selected hardware offering the optimum blend of lightness and durability.

AWS or "All water series" rods are designed to bridge the gap between light, freshwater and heavy saltwater applications, featuring saltwater safe hardware and fittings, including carbon or aluminium reel seat inserts, larger guides and more powerful actions.

SWS or "Saltwater series" rods are true hardcore saltwater rods, designed to meet the challenges of the saltwater environment head on. The rods feature heavy duty fixtures and fittings including extra large guides, heavy duty salt safe reel seats and enlarged fighting butts.

A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE Hardy has been hand-crafting reels in Alnwick for over 120 years, a record that no other tackle manufacturer can ever hope to match. Tradition is baked into our DNA but it can only exist in partnership with the constant quest to refine our designs. More than anything else, it is innovation that lies at the heart of the ethos that drives our engineers in a constant search to improve our tackle—without the unique chemistry that binds them and our time-served craftsmen together, reels like the modern Perfect or the Cascapedia could never have been developed.

Ultralite CA DD One of the sweetest sounds in fly fishing is the scream of a well-engineered reel smoothly surrendering line to a hot fish as it heads for the horizon‌ but when that hot fish turns tail and runs right back down the barrel at you, the ability to pick line up and stay in contact becomes paramount to success. The Ultralite CA DD reel series is designed with an ultra large, conical arbor giving incredible line pick up and reducing drag gain on the longest runs, whilst the 360 degree colour coded drag system delivers consistent drag pressure and the ability to always stay one step ahead of the twists and turns of the hottest fish.

The Ultralite MA DD series of reels features a smooth 360 degree colour coded drag for faultless control and easy reference during the fight, and a medium arbor spool designed for anglers who like the comfort of an extra reserve of backing or the extra capacity needed to fit speciality fly line tapers for Pike, Salmon, trophy Trout or even switch style fishing—Ultralite MA DD designed to go the distance.
