The allure of a Hardy Ultralite Fly Rod is more than its elegant looks. Hardy takes its light and responsive rod blank made with its proprietary Sintrix NSX material to craft the award-winning Ultralite range of fly fishing rods. Sintrix NSX improves strength-to-weight ratio and in-hand balance, enabling you to exert a greater degree of control on the casting stroke. Hardy pushes the limits on performance with these blanks on its flagship freshwater range of high-modulus fly rods, including adding flexible titanium recoil stripper guides with ceramic inserts that move with the blank. The Ultralite Fly Rod also features a modern, crisp action for excellent tracking and reserved power. The up-locking reel seat is a thing of beauty in form and function. Hardy moves more of the rod’s weight behind, giving unsurpassed in-hand balance, while a single starting thread and keyed body ensure a snug and aligned fit to your reel. The laser-engraved line designation adds to the reel seat’s already polished design. A masterpiece of form and function, you’ll want the refined instrument that is the Hardy Ultralite Fly Rod.
