Hardy Zenith Review And Hardy Sintrix Fly Rods | Jon Malovich Interview

The Wait Is Over for the Hardy Zenith Review And Hardy Sintrix Fly Rods Video | Hey! It’s The Jon Malovich Interview

Hardy Zenith Review and Sintrix Tech Interview with Jon Malovich

Hardy Fly Rods Rep Jon Malovich with MFlyShop.com owner, Bradley Marlow

Hardy Zenith Review: Poor Jon Malovich.

This guy travels over 40,000 miles a year and by the time he hit Marlow’s Fly Shop in little Dubois, Wyoming – I could tell he was a bit worn.

Despite that fact – Jon shared with me, in this never before seen Hardy Zenith Review Video, what goes into the Hardy Sintrix Rods technology.

He also discussed the difference between the Hardy Zenith 4 Piece Fly Rods

and the

Hardy Zenith One Piece rods.

…and he did this in style!

Watch the Hardy Zenith Review Video (Just Above)

When you see Jon Malovich, you know instantly that there is no wonder why he has moved up in the ranks at Hardy USA.

Jon is the Western Regional Business Manager and has been there a long time. As you can see in the picture, Jon Malovich is a big guy – with a kind heart and a serious dedication to Hardy Fly Rods.

Jon has been waiting patiently for me to actually get a Hardy Zenith review video and post completed. Waiting and waiting.

The reason it took me so long is because I wanted to actually go fly fishing with the Hardy Zenith rods – get video with it and have an honest opinion about them. Wait no more Jon Malovich

– we love the Hardy Sintrix Rods!

For those who aren’t sure, the Hardy Zenith rod is made using a proprietary material called SINTRIX.

Watch the Hardy Zenith Review video above to learn more about why the SINTRIX material is so strong and light. Jon Malovich really breaks it down quite well. It is also quite possibly, one of the strongest fly rod on the planet!

You can apply what Jon talks about in this Hardy Zenith review video – Sintrix technology –ย  as follows:

Hardy Sintrix Fly Rods: There are Four Hardy Rods with SINTRIX Technology

  1. The Hardy Zenith 4 Piece Fly Rod
  2. The Hardy Zenith One Piece Fly Rod
  3. The Hardy Proaxis Saltwater Fly Rods (in 1 and 4 piece versions)
  4. The Hardy Zenith DH Fly Rods (The Double Handed Spey Rods)
Here I am hanging out on a float tube with my new Hardy Zenith 9 ft 5 weight fly rod - and a nice Cutty :)

Hardy Sintrix Rods Win Again!

In 2012, the Hardy Zenith 8′ 6″ fly rod won the Yellowstone shootout once again.

I say once again because in 2011, the Hardy Zenith 9′ 0″ 5 weight won all the accolades.

Hardy Zenith wins 2012 4 weight shoot out!

What I really like about the Hardy Zenith rod series is that I can fish with a lighter weight rod and cast further, when needed.

No worries about the rod breaking and really feel the play of the fish.

When Jon says this Zenith rod “has personality” I couldn’t agree more.

There is definitely an “extremely fun to fish” aspect in this Hardy Zenith Rod.

The Professional guides I book out of the fly shop, have thoroughly enjoyed the Hardy Zenith and many of us are now playing with the 10 footer Hardy Zenith in a 3 and 4 weight.

The Hardy Zenith One Piece fly rod is a pure joy to fish. I use it a lot and in the Hardy Zenith review video – you’ll see me standing in a small mountain stream casting to Brookies long distance.

What a blast!

Another Note About The Hardy Zenith Review On The One Piece Fly Rod

8′ 10″ Why That Size?

The main reason is because of the shipping. Having it at 8′ 10″ instead of 9′ 0″ save a large amount of money on shipping costs. Yet through all of the testing with the Hardy Zenith prototypes – they could not find a difference in ability to cast everything for small dries up to massive muskie flies. (See Hardy Zenith Review Video above)

We are thrilled to be working with Jon Malovich and the entire Team over at Hardy and Greys – based in PA. Hello to Chris and Hugh (just to mention a few I speak with frequently).
