Hardy Ultralite X 905
9' 5 weight, 4 piece fly rod
The Ultralite X rod family from Hardy is super fast and incredibly light in hand. New for 2020 - these rods are among our favorites here in our Bozeman fly shop for everyday use on our larger rivers like the Madison and Yellowstone. Weather and conditions often call for a versatile rod to handle everything from streamers to dries on a given day, the Ultralite X is a true standout in the versatile, fast-action fly rod category for fly fishing in Montana and anywhere else that trout call home.
There are adverse conditions that place a different set of demands on our equipment - extreme weather, extreme distance, or even extreme flies. The Ultralite X is the answer to those demands and is significantly faster than our standard Ultralite. The high recovery rates drive tight loops with even the largest flies. The more powerful butt section is built for lifting deep sunk lines, pressuring large fish away from snags, and handling density compensated fly lines with aggressive tapers.
- Sintrix NSX combined with a greater percentage of high modulus carbon fibre
- Rapid taper blank design maximizes material performance
- Ceramic lined titanium recoil guides
- Rod of choice for high performance situations
