Hardy Proaxis Rods

Sintrix is 30 percent lighter and 60 percent stronger than conventional carbon fiber

Rod builders continue to push the envelope of strength, durability and functionality with rods today. Hardy is no exception, using a material called Sintrix in its new Proaxis line of rods. Sintrix is 30 percent lighter and 60 percent stronger than conventional carbon fiber, making Proaxis rods ultra-lightweight and extremely strong. Hardy designers even sought advice from legendary tarpon angler Andy Mill to make the Proaxis sticks great casting and fish-fighting machines. The Proaxis series has fast action and features titanium recoil guides from REC and Fuji. Choose from 8-foot-10-inch one-piece models ranging from 8- through 12-weight, or select an easier-to-transport four-piece model, offered in 6- through 12-weight. Starting price is $499; www.hardyfishing.com
