Good afternoon (really, it is). Hardy has shipped us some of it’s highly anticipated Proaxis rods more than a month early. Now I know that there are a lot of good rods on the market, but these are, in my opinion, some of the best.
The best way I can describe their action is that they are extremely efficient in their transfer of potential (stored energy in the rod blank when it is bent on the forward and back cast) to kinetic (getting the line moving–that’s the goal, after all) energy.
I have just spent a few hours in the park casting each one of them, and I can tell you they are something truly amazing. They feature solid hardware and REC guides–the bendy titanium ones that don’t corrode or break. How much more can you ask for, really?
If you have any questions you can use the contact form on our website, or send me an email directly to [email protected]. I am happy to answer any and all questions you have regarding these amazing rods, including when the one piece versions and the 11 and 12 weight 4 piece versions are slated for delivery (Every rod will be here, as promised, by the initial ship date of 15 March, 2011, but some rods are coming in smaller shipments early.) For those of you who pre-ordered rods I’ll be getting in touch if your rod(s) have arrived already, otherwise I will call you when they come in.
Here’s a photo to keep you warm:
