Hardy Glass Fly Rod


It's not often that a modern rod is made from 90% glass fiber, but that's exactly what Hardy decided to do with the Hardy Glass fly rod. Not only that, but the rod turns out to be highly precise, accurate and sensitive.

The Hardy Glass fly rod might seem like a throwback to the 1960s, but glass fiber has a number of advantages. The main benefit of a composite glass fiber and carbon rod is additional strength and impact resistance. If you love fishing in tough, isolated rivers, then the Hardy Glass fly rod could be the perfect option.

The mix of carbon and glass, with a 10/90 ratio in favor of glass fiber, creates an incredibly smooth action that's a pleasure to cast. The rod's recovery is also controlled and well dampened. This combination allows for highly precise short range casting, making the rod perfect for tight situations.

Other features of the Hardy Glass fly rod include a sliding reel fitting, classic English styling and a cork handle. Hardy Glass rods have lightweight, durable blanks for both easy casting and durability. The rod also comes with a canvas cover and alloy tube as part of the deal, and is covered by Hardy's Worldwide Extended Warranty (WEW).
