Hardy Ultralite SR 9ft 5wt review by Andrew Ryan of Clonanav Fly Fishing - FFF MCI and APGAI Ireland member puts this rod through its paces. The bigger brother of the 8ft8 # 4wt this rod is ideal for fishing larger rivers and handling bigger flies. A 9ft 5wt is the do it all rod and this one is really good in all aspects. It will fish dries, large nymphs and even streamers and has the power to run over larger flies - but still the finesse to fish finer tippets. Configured in a 6 piece so the ideal travel rod and may be one of the lightest 9ft 5wt rods on the market at the moment
We are pleased to announce the addition of these small river rods to the award winning Ultralite range of Hardy rods. The Hardy Sintrix NSX material is the perfect mix for a crisp rod that protects light tippets and gives you a forgiving, easy loading action for the accuracy and control you need in a small river or stream. The new range includes 6-piece packing rods for some great distancing off the trail.
