Just like it sounds the Hardy Zephrus Allwater Fly Rod is for all around fishing whether you need to head to the river or the ocean, it works for both. The Hardy Zephrus fly rods took home best fly rod award at the European Fsihing Tackle Trade Association Show. The Zephrus is Hardy's successor to its highly-awarded Zenith family of rods also built with Hardy's SINTRIX 440 technology.
There are three new rods in the Zephrus Series: a freshwater series, (FWS), a saltwater series (SWS) and an all-water series (AWS) with AWS series bridging the gap between light fresh and heavy saltwater applications, featuring saltwater safe hardware and fittings, including carbon or aluminum reel seat inserts, larger guides and more powerful actions. FWS or "All water series" rods feature select hardwood reel seats, high grade lightweight REC guides/components and feature light, responsive blanks, more suitable towards freshwater fishing.
