Hi
Has anyone fished with Hardy rods. Are they any good? Can I use them for fresh water?
Thanks

The name suggests they are strong :lol: :lol: :lol:

You need to check if the Rod is made for saltwater or not, every company makes some rods that are suitable for saltwater and some that are not.

Hardy does make salt water rods, try looking up the model number in google..

Hardy are a very old company based in Scotland. They used to make a lot of salmon fishing gear and the big game tackle used for bluefin tuna in the North Sea before that fishery was wiped out.
Of late, they and their subsidury Greys have diversified a fair bit and make quite a bit of saltwater tackle but as is so often the case these days, it's all now made in China.
Personally, I find their gear to be overpriced and over-rated but plenty of people disagree. If you can find their kit at the right price then go for it but I suspect that you could find better gear cheaper.
