Offering a significant improvement on the previous model, the Hardy Zenith, the new Zephrus Fly Rod is built to perform and stand out from the crowd. Available in two basic versions. The Zephrus which you see here is the perfect tool for freshwater and occasional saltwater anglers and the Zephrus Saltwater, which is listed separately and designed as an out and out saltwater special.
Like its predecessor, the Hardy Zephrus Fly Rod uses the exclusive Hardy Sintrix 440 Silica Nano Matrix blank technology to create a fly rod that is both super strong and super lightweight. This award winning technology coupled with the unique manufacturing process gives this rod an increase in strength of 60% over most carbon fibre rods. The increase in strength does not come at the expense of casting comfort, as the Zephrus is actually up to 30% lighter than a comparable carbon fiber rod.
Hardy's dedication to creating the ultimate fly rod does not end with the blank as these rods have been fitted with premium REC titanium recoil black pearl guides that will help give your line less friction and reduced line noise. The advantage of recoil guides is that they are durable and able to handle pressure. So, if the guides are bent in some way when under pressure, they will 'recoil' back into shape.
Another feature of the Zephrus rod is the Fuji titanium framed stripper guides, these provide additional durability and help reduce the weight of the rod. These rods all have a fast action blank design and have an enhanced in hand feel.
The Zephrus is olive green in colour and features high quality cork handles. The AWS (all water series) rods have a full wells handle with a fighting butt and the FWS (fresh water series) rods have a reverse half wells handle.
The Hardy Zephrus Fly Rod is available in a range of different lengths and AFTM ratings that can be selected from our drop down menu.
Also available from Angling Active is the Hardy Zephrus Saltwater Fly Rod. This 4 piece, dark navy blue coloured rod is a saltwater game changer! Perfect for any saltwater angler and is available in a 9ft length with various different AFTM ratings.
Whichever model of rod you select, you'll feel the power when casting the impeccably designed Hardy Zephrus Fly Rod. The Zephrus is an exceptional rod that delivers high recovery, generates high line speed, easy line load and phenomenal line control that won't leave you disappointed.
