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 Suir, 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.
The original Bluetooth Saltwater/Predator range was a best seller and now they are even better due to our use of Nano technology. Bluetooth Nano fishing rods allow you to load deeper into the blank giving you access to the real power within. This helps you cast the large flies required for saltwater and predator fishing. Once your quarry is hooked the Bluetooth NanTec provides incredible strength and the lifting power needed to stop serious, battling beasties. The highly portable 4 piece blank is finished in electric blue and features an over sized stripping guide, hardened chrome guides and a high grade cork handle.

The natural progression for our ever popular streamtec range was the inclusion of Nano Technology into the blank, making it lighter, stronger and even more responsive than previously possible.
Designed specifically for running water, this range of rods has a smooth progressive action that works extremely well at short to mid range and acts as a great cushion for light tippets on big fish. The 10’ models have been specifically designed to meet the demands of modern Czech and French nymphing techniques, although the 10’ 5/6 doubles as an excellent light top of the water rod for traditional loch style drifting.
