With your heart racing, you cast the Hardy Zenith 4-Piece Fly Rod and watch your fly land perfectly on the water right in front of a large sipping rainbow that's been gorging itself on green drakes all morning. Made with Sintrix carbon fiber blanks, this ultra-fast-action rod delivers precise casting at normal distances and can handle longer casts, windy conditions, and heavier rigs with ease. Suddenly you catch a glimpse of the fish's open mouth as he gulps down the fly. With precision, you set the hook and, thanks to the Zenith's impressive strength, you're able to firmly yet playfully reel this beauty-of-a-fish to the bank and remove the fly without taking the trout all the way out of the water.

Satisfied with your morning, you break down this four-piece rod and marvel at its top-shelf titanium recoil guides from REC and Fuji, stunning two-part skeletal reel seat, and quality appearance. Thanks to its included alloy rod tube, you're able to protect the Zenith during travel and storage. The Zenith is available in a Reverse Half Wells handle (RHW) for those who normally use shorter light line rods or in a Full Wells plus extension handle (FW+EH) for those who like a balanced rod that provides comfort when playing with fish.

Here's what others have to say...

Where are these rods manufactured?

Hey, nice shot! This specific model is going to be manufactured in Asia.

Give a shout out to Matthew Pizza or Dan Gates our Expert Gearheads with Fly Fishing Gear, they can assist you more with this.

I think it was a rhetorical question.

A lot fly anglers are very particular about buying US made only rods.

Yes, and many of those same fly anglers are driving Hondas, Toyotas and Nissans. Or, have no issue with buying an Orvis if made in England, but not anything from Asia - hmmmm....

Can the discount be applied to the purchase?

Contact me and lets see what we can work out

What type of rel seat is on the 9 ft 4 wt Zenith rod shown. Written discription is the "skeletal" reel seat, while the solid wood reel seat (newer) is shown?


that is going to come with the wooden reel seat as shown. Standard screw ring closure on that.
