SINTRIX® TECHNOLOGY: IT'S THE SMALL THINGS THAT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.
Never has that statement held more truth than with the development of SINTRIX® technology. All carbon rods utilise carbon fi bres that are bonded together by an adhesive resin. The resin material used in SINTRIX® is produced by ?M®, it is a unique and patented material incorporating silica nano spheres which provides two distinct benefi ts. Firstly the microscopic silica spheres are able to evenly surround every individual carbon fi bre fi lament providing a matrix of strength throughout the rod. Secondly, being spherical, the silica particles are able to resist pressure and compression from any angle. This is particularly important because it is under compression forces, on the underside of a bent rod, rather than tension forces, on the outside of the curve, that carbon fi bre is most likely to weaken and potentially break. So by resisting compression better, SINTRIX® rods are stronger. In developing SINTRIX® our specialist composite engineers and rod designers spent over two years experimenting with diff erent types, and mixes, of carbon fi bres combined with varying levels of ?M® nano silica resin. They also discovered that the normal manufacturing processes associated with carbon fi bre rods had to be signifi cantly changed in order to get the best from the new ?M® resin material. The fi nal results were astonishing with up to 60% increases in strength and up to 30% savings in weight. Driven by our passion and determination to always push the boundaries--part of Hardy's DNA since 1872--we now off er varying levels of SINTRIX® technology across our rod range, each level brings signifi cant and tangible benefi ts over traditional carbon fi bre construction.
Microscopic silica spheres evenly surround every individual carbon fibre filament providing a matrix of strength throughout the rod.

SINTRIX® 330: Upto 30% increase in strength over traditional carbon fibre.
SINTRIX® 440: Upto 60% increase in strength and upto 30% weight reduction over traditional carbon fibre.
SINTRIX® 550: Up to 60% increase in compressive strength and up to 30% weight reduction over traditional carbon fibre, with an increase in GPA (stiffness) of up to 15% over SINTRIX® 440.

When I received the first prototype blanks rolled from SINTRIX® material in late 2009 I was shocked. I've held and flexed literally thousands of rod blanks over the years, and when I held the 9ft #10 saltwater rod, I was immediately taken aback at the lack of weight for a #10 - it just instantly felt 'right'. Our early work on the material with our sister company Hardy Advanced Composites had indicated considerable increases in compressive strength and impact resistance where possible, but even our material engineers were not prepared for the results. Following the first day of testing, we even asked the manufacturer of our compressive strength tester to re-calibrate the machine as the results it had produced were, to quote one of our testers, "nonsense". There was nothing wrong with the testing machine, the blanks netted out at close to 60% stronger than our calculations suggested they ought to be, and from that point on the entire team focused on the development of what became the Zenith and Proaxis series of rods and the refinement of what was to become SINTRIX® technology. I could tell you about the testing trips to the Florida Keys fishing for sharks with medium-weight Trout rods, or the actual fist fight that took place on the dockside between two guides over a test rod, but I think some of these quotes from icons and pioneers in the sport tell the impact that SINTRIX® actually made far better than I could.

FRESHWATER, ALL WATER AND SALTWATER
Tactical and Extreme A number of Hardy rods within our series feature T or E designations. T designated rods are designed with highly tactical situations in mind where a careful combination of line feel, recovery and carefully calibrated blank stiffness are required to meet specific challenges. Rods designated with an E are typically more at the 'extreme' end of the scale where ultrafast actions and high recovery are specifically required.

Saltwater (SWS)
SWS or "Saltwater series" rods are true hardcore saltwater rods, designed to meet the challenges of the saltwater environment head on. The rods feature heavy duty fixtures and fittings including extra large guides, heavy duty salt safe reel seats and enlarged fighting butts.

All water (AWS)
AWS or "All water series" rods are designed to bridge the gap between light, freshwater and heavy saltwater applications, featuring saltwater safe hardware and fittings, including carbon or aluminium reel seat inserts, larger guides and more powerful actions.

Freshwater (FWS)
FWS or "Freshwater series" rods feature selected wood spacers, refined handle designs and carefully selected hardware offering the optimum blend of lightness and durability.
