Has anyone put a line on the above rod yet..Purchased one recently to brighten a damp week on the Tweed but other than a wiggle in the shop I don't know what it is like.I was told the action is like the Zeniths which for me would be a major plus.

Copying my answer in from the other thread 👍

I bought the 13.6 and 14.6 here in Sweden late October replacing my zephrus counterparts.

Just had time for a quick test before the snow and ice arrived for this winter.

In my eyes both the Zenith and Zephrus were underclassed rods the 14.6 was more of a true 10 weight and the 13.6 a true 9 weight.

However the same lines felt heavy on the nsx ultralite rods. My 37 gram head which I used on the zephrus 13.6 felt to heavy on the 13.6 nsx rod, but was spot on with the 14.6 instead.

I believe Hardy even wrote recommended head weights on the blanks as lower then what they had on the Zephrus rods.

But I have to do more testing come spring.
