Let the rod come to life
Double handed Salmon rods, built with Hardy SINTRIX® 440, and with a super-fast action. Fitted with shorter Scandi-style handles and capable of dealing with a much wider range of line weight, these are the ultimate in Salmon rods.
These super fast action, double handed Zenith SINTRIX rods are manufactured using Hardy SINTRIX® 440 material which gives them an incredible strength to weight ratio.
All carbon rods utilise carbon fibres that are bonded together by an adhesive resin. The resin material used in SINTRIX® is produced by 3M, it is a unique and patented material incorporating silica nano spheres which provides two distinct benefits. Firstly the microscopic silica spheres are able to evenly surround every individual carbon fibre filament 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 fibre 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 different types, and mixes, of carbon fibres combined with varying levels of 3M nano silica resin. They also discovered that the normal manufacturing processes associated with carbon fibre rods had to be significantly changed in order to get the best from the new 3M resin material. The final results were astonishing with upto 60% increases in strength and upto 30% savings in weight. During the course of our years of development with fibres, resin levels and manufacturing processes, we have so far produced three separate versions of SINTRIX® material. Each version offers significant benefits in strength and lightness over traditional carbon fibre. However SINTRIX® is available in ascending levels of power, performance and refinement.
