Hardy Glass Fly Rod

Hardy Glass Fly Rod at Front Range Anglers

Glass reinvented? Are we talking 2009 or 1969? Let Product Manager, Howard Croston, explain. "Glass fiber has been largely ignored over the past twenty years in favour of lighter and faster carbon fibers. 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 - making it ideal for the toughest fishing on back-country rivers and streams." By mixing glass to carbon we have 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 situations, Hardy Glass is the perfect choice.

  • Rods are made from 10% carbon and 90% glass fibre
  • Easy loading, durable blank for toughness
  • Lightweight blanks and sliding reel fitting
  • Tapered cork handle with classic styling
  • Alloy tube and canvas cover

 

FRA's Review of the Hardy Glass:
"The Hardy Glass rods provide cane like feel at a fraction of the price and give you the durability required to fish on a regular basis.  This rod is perfectly suited for anglers who chase fish in small streams and would prefer to catch fish on dries.  Feel the difference with each cast and on every fish.  We had too much fun fishing alpine creeks with this little guy, brookies and cutthroats, single dry fly and deadly accuracy.  The Glass rods provide a whole new way to look at a small stream." ~FRA
