    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 favor 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.

    Features:

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