Default Re: Hardy Zenith Beginner Friendly?

IMHO, you have a great rod and as your casting ability improves, you will soon learn to appreciate the Zenith. I am in no way an accomplished caster but found the rod very light in hand and found that it has the ability to throw a decent amount of line. I believe the limits of this rod are those of the hand casting it. It would not be my first choice for small stream fishing (I use a 3 wt. 7'-6" ZXL that I picked up on sale), but I do not regret buying my 4wt. 8'-6". I have it paired with a Waterworks - Lamson 1.5 and a RIO Gold WF4F. I did't feel the need to over-line the rod to make it work for me. Good luck with your choice.
