Hatch reels are in a class of their own; a separate breed. Pick up a Hatch and wonder how the one-piece, bar-stock aluminium cage was fashioned to incorporate the foot and the drag-housing – let alone the cage itself! Sculpted to classical standards, Hatch’s craftsmen and women have taken weight-reducing minimalism to the limit without compromising the reel’s integrity and strength one iota...this is an immensely powerful reel without a hint of unwanted play – anywhere! This is true ‘precision’ engineering; a reel of practical beauty whose waterproof 10-disc Rulon/Stainless steel drag will stop a train if necessary...a reel to combat the throes of a livid tarpon, the surge of a salmon and the searing run of a sailfish! Whether you’re a stream fisher or an ocean-going big game enthusiast and you’re prepared to invest in the ultimate fly reel, be prepared for mind-blowing performance.
