Hardy Glass Rods

Glasss reinvented? Are we talking 2009 or 1969? Let Product Manager, Howard Croston, explain. “Glass fibre had been largely ignored over the past 20 years in favor of lighter and faster carbon fibres. It’s true that carbon is a superior material for lots of rod construction purposes, but not all. Adding glass to the mix gives a rod incredible durability and resistance to impact – make it it ideal for the toughest fishing on back-country rivers and stream.”

By mixing glass to carbon, Hardy has achieved an easy loading, smooth action, with controlled, well-dampened recovery. The easy loading nature of these rods makes them sensational. They allow short range, controlled presentation with the absolute minimum of fly line beyond the tip ring. For the light, stream angler working in the tightest situation, Hardy glass is the perfect choice.
