Fishing for king salmon is a dancing competition and you'll be sure to take top prize when your partner is the Hardy 4 Piece Zenith DH Fly Rod. Made from an innovative material, your new dancing partner is 30% lighter and 60% stronger than comparable rods. Big fish anglers will revel in the seductively smooth and effortless action while being utterly smitten with the inexplicable balance between brute strength and subtle finesse of the Zenith. Sintrix 440 is unique to Hardy and is what makes the Zenith come alive in your hands. Silica nanospheres are incorporated with carbon fiber to create a rod with superb flex, stunning strength, and stellar precision. Top of the line titanium guides stay strong when you're dancing with a fish where title of king doesn't do it justice. The double handed design is deliberate longer, heavier lines often require the control that comes from two handed, Scandi style casting though if you prefer long speylines or skagit lines, the Zenith will still perform at an unbeatable level. Fast action is enhanced with a flexible tip so you can hit the bull eye, whether the target is 75 feet or 25 feet away. The anodized reel seat is ready for a setup worthy of this lissom rod, such as the Hardy Ultralite DD reels and related Ultralite Disc Drag sold separately. The rod tube and other traveling accessories make it safe and simple to take your Zenith to the Kenai peninsula, even when you live in land locked Kentucky.
