Freshwater rods with fast tip recovery and a high line speed are fun to use. The problem is, many of them lose line control and it’s often easier to pick a rod with a steadier cast. But if you like high adrenaline fishing, then the Hardy Wraith is for you. It achieves incredible casts with its ultra-fast action, along with its great tip recovery and line control.
SINTRIX® 550 Ultra-Fast Action Blank Design
The Wraith’s SINTRIX 550 blank construction has up to 60% more compressive strength and 30% less weight than traditional carbon fibre. SINTRIX 550 also has a 15% increase in GPa (stiffness) over SINTRIX 440 for even more blank stability. All this helps retain line control while giving the rod a great feel.
SINTRIX 550 lets you produce fast, crisp, tight and powerful loops with a lot of precision in every cast, even at a long distance. The high-end blank aids tip recovery, line speed, presentation and turnover, which are all exceptionally fast on this rod.
Hardy’s Trademark Attention to Detail
The patented REC® black pearl recoil guides, which return to their original shape after repeated deformations and never corrode, are an almost weightless alternative to ceramic inserts. While REC makes the Wraith’s recoil guides, Hardy also chose to use Fuji® titanium stripper guides. The titanium used by Fuji is over 35% lighter than stainless steel, despite being 3 times stronger.
The Wraith is made with a high grade cork handle and the double up-locking reel seat helps balance the rod by placing the reel close to the grip. Everything is supplied in a custom aluminium tube with engraved metal end caps. This version of the Wraith has selected hardwood spacers, but there’s also anwith a carbon reel insert, which is better for saltwater.
