When fast isn't fast enough.

There are fast action fly rods and then there is the Hardy Wraith. Anglers who loved the fast action feel of the popular Zenith, but wanted just a bit more backbone to punch flies through downstream winds, will fall head over waders for the ultra fast action of the Wraith. Made with Hardy's top-secret Sintrix 550 compound, the Wraith is made with the highest grade of Sintrix material available from Hardy. Sintrix 550 makes the Wraith both lighter and stiffer than the award-winning Zenith, resulting in a rod that's faster, stiffer, and all-around better at making long, precise casts that are often key to a successful day on the water.

Hardy has made the Wraith available in a wide array of configurations with rod weights starting at five and going on up to eight for salmon and steelhead applications. Each option features Hardy's Sintrix 550 blank construction along with top-shelf components along with hardwood spacers available in the five and seven weights and triaxial carbon spacers available on rods ranging between seven and eight weights. All rods feature a cork handle available in either half-wells or full-wells shape, along with Fuji titanium stripper guides and black recoil guides standard on all options.

Not for the delicate at heart

I've used it several times

This puppy launches! Suits my style of fishing perfectly. Allows for great distance casting on the river, and solid control and feel. Wow!

Hand cannon!

Needed a replacement for my z-axis, this rod is amazing! For my 5wt rod I want something that will be able to throw any size fly and hit the target on the bullseye. This rod does it and it will be replacing a few other rods in my quiver, give it a shot, you would be not be disappointed.
