The Zenith series of rods uses the amazing properties of Hardy & Greys SINTRIX material in an ultra-advanced, four-section design to produce a range of rods that are user-friendly yet high performance. SINTRIX rods have an incredible strength to weight ratio & come fitted with titanium line guide & superb skeletal reel seat. SINTRIX
- up to a 60% increase in compressive strength. Incredible strength to weight ratio. High performance, fast action design. Top of the line Titanium guides from REC & Fuji. stunning Hardy designed two part skeletal reel seat. Background SINTRIX™ is the trade-marked brand name for Hardy & Greys new composite rod material. The material was initially developed by 3M in the USA for the aerospace industry. 3M has only awarded four fishing tackle companies licences to use its base silica nano matrix material. Hardy & Greys Ltd. Is the only UK brand with a licence. The specific mix of material used for SINTRIX™ is exclusive, & therefore unique, to Hardy & Greys Ltd. The Material SINTRIX™ is carbon fibre held together with a resin impregnated with silica nano spheres. This technology is brand new & produces a material that is significantly stronger & potentially lighter than traditional carbon fibre. There are two key advantages provided by silica nano spheres. First is the even distribution of the nano spheres throughout the resin providing equality of strength throughout the blank leading to crisp & clean rod actions. The second advantage is that silica nano spheres resist compression forces better than any other known material. This results in a fishing rod that is at least 60% stronger than a standard carbon fibre rod without interfering with the action. The enhanced compression characteristic also greatly improves impact resistance & durability. Because SINTRIX™ material is stronger, in some cases less material is required & thus a rod can be lighter than an equivalent carbon fibre model. Weight savings of upto 30% are possible. SINTRIX™ is significantly different & better than carbon nano tube materials currently in use with other manufacturers. Carbon nano tubes do not distribute evenly within resins & are prone to conglomeration. This creates adjacent areas of strength & relative weakness leading to failure. Hardy & Greys have extensively trialed nano tube technology rejecting it for its only marginal improvements & considerable inconsistency.
