The next great Hardy Reel is this stunning new Hardy Ultralite CA DD series. With its worldwide reputation for top end quality and unrelenting performance, Hardy are introducing the replacement for the best selling Ultralite DD reels. The new Ultralite CA DD fly reel has been fully designed and developed by the Hardy Team in Alnwick and aims to be the finest freshwater, large arbor fly reel ever produced by Hardy!
The Ultralite CA DD fly reel features a host of improvements on the original DD that will appeal to serious anglers. The CA DD reel body is made from aerospace-grade 6061 bar stock aluminium for superior strength yet still keeping lightweight feel. The Ultralite CA DD fly reel has a stunning industrial design and its ultra large arbor is in-keeping with the latest trends, its conical arbor giving incredible line pick up and reducing drag gain on the longest runs, providing technical anglers with a lightweight, finely tuned reel that is capable of subduing the most demanding freshwater species all over the globe.
There are eight sizes in the range, from size 3000 to 10000, with the smallest size hitting the scales at just 130g (4.6oz). One important feature is the new 360 degree disc drag. The drag setting can be seen at a glance as the coloured dots on the drag knob clearly indicate between a heavy drag (red) and lighter drag setting (green) and most importantly the drag can be set from zero to maximum in just one turn of the knob. The reel also features a captive spool release that makes using spare spools a breeze.
The Hardy Ultralite CA DD fly reel is finished in either a two-tone Titanium or Black finish and comes with a soft neoprene case. Spare spools are also available in both colours.

All carbon rods use a resin adhesive to bond them together. For the new Zephrus rods, Hardy® opts for the resin material found in SINTRIX®, produced by 3M®. Whether leaning into a leaping triple-digit tarpon on Caribbean flats or delicately casting to finicky, sipping brown trout on the Madison, anglers will appreciate and rely on the Zephrus' performance.
The unique, silica-nano process gives the Hardy Zephrus freshwater and saltwater models strength throughout the rod. SINTRIX 440 blank construction makes the Zephrus rod 60-percent stronger than traditional graphite fibers and up to 30-percent savings in overall weight. REC® black pearl recoil guides with Fuji® titanium stripper align the Zephrus blank for optimum casting distance.
The highly refined medium-fast action blank has reserve power when needed and gives anglers incredible line feel. Light in the hand, the 8-foot freshwater rod weighs only 2.5 ounces and is in perfect balance with the reel for a complete day of casting.
The select hardwood and triaxial carbon spacers deliver added sensitivity to the Zephrus and custom reel seat holds the reel in place.
All Freshwater and Allwater Zephrus rods are four–piece while the Saltwater models are one or four-piece with each rod packed in a convenient travel tube.
Rods will be available mid-October

We could write an entire book on the adventure that has led to the development and introduction of the Cross S1 fly rods, but we wont. Instead, we would rather ask you to try one because the only way to truly understand what we mean is to test one for yourself.
