Hardy Glass Rods available for special order.
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. Glass fibre has been largely ignored over the past twenty years in favor of lighter and faster carbon fibres. 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 - making it ideal for the toughest fishing on back-country rivers and streams. Mixing glass to carbon creates an easy loading, smooth action, with controlled, well-dampened recovery.
