Hanak Superlight Fly Rod


Hanak Superlight

A series of ultra-light and high-powered rods. The use of the latest technologies and materials in combination with lightweight components has enabled the weight of these rods to be reduced by around 30% (up to 30g) in comparison with common rods. Supplied with a fabric rod bag and durable carry tube.

This is the rod used by most Australian and European competition river anglers.

Review by Australian Fly Fishing Team member - Tom Jarman.

When selecting a rod for my competition and leisure fishing, there are three main things I like to consider. These are; how the rod performs, it’s durability, and how comfortable it is to fish with. For me, the Hanak Superlight rods certainly tick all of these boxes.
Having used these rods for more than two years now, I would describe their action as clean and crisp. It allows very accurate and delicate presentations with very little effort, while handling both large and small fish beautifully. While the butt of the rod does enable the angler to land large fish, the softer tip protects lighter tippets well but still seems to track straight during the cast even if I venture slightly off course. The tip of the rod recovers very quickly and there is basically no "side to side" wobble if you move the rod slightly off the straight line path.
This is little surprise I suppose seeing as though the development of these rods can be attributed to the multiple time world champion, Czech fly fishing team. Many of the best river rods in the world come from within Europe probably due to the diversity of rivers they posses, population and popularity of all styles of successful fly fishing.
The Hanak Superlight is well put together with single foot guides and a lovely, unique finish. There are small dots which enable you to line each piece of the rod up perfectly when putting them together and the tapered cigar shaped cork grip gives good feel on such a light blank.
