Steve Hunt spends a day trout fishing with a Hardy Zenith Sintrix 9′ #5 matched with Waterworks ULA Force 2X SL fly reel.

If Carlsberg made fly rods and reels they would have just copied the HARDY SINTRIX  ZENITH FLY ROD AND THE LAMSON ULA FORCE SL REEL.

Probably the finest combination money can buy, a true marriage made in heaven.

All these superlatives describe the rod and reel combination I used recently at our local trout fishery Delbury Hall in Shropshire.

Right from the start whilst tackling up, the rod felt very well balanced a well shaped cork handle that felt snug in the hand this was complimented with a very impressively designed two part skeletal reel seat ,this gave the rod a very modern look, and certainly stands out from the crowd.

The unbelievably thin diameter light sage coloured green blank is trimmed with dark green whippings and is furnished with top of the line single leg titanium guides from REC and Fuji

The rod exudes quality!

Jonathan Tomlinson field tests the innovative new Greys XF2 river rod.

I been lucky enough to give this rod a thorough workout in the last 3 weeks, firstly in Bosnia and then back here in the UK and have to say that I have nothing but praise for it. A very innovative design allows the user to remove a 6” section from the butt of the rod and insert it between the butt and second section of the rod allowing it to become a 10 footer. Not only is this at times a massive benefit but equally you are able to do it while fishing and not have to re thread the line through the rod rings. It also means that the rod tube will fit into a bag when travelling much easier that a true 10’ 4pce rod (I use the medium sized Simms Dry Creek Duffle Bag)

The rod is well finished and very light in the hand and makes a full day on the river anything but tiring.
