Hatch 7+ Finatic Fly Reels & Spools
If I was stranded on a desert island and had only one reel to bring, it would be the 7 Plus. We have sold more of these bad boys than any other size in the Hatch line up. From bonefish to permit, steelhead to carp, this reel has you covered.
We wanted it sealed – hence the drag cassette.We’ve employed a multi-disc stack in all models that is comprised of Rulon® and laser-cut stainless steel discs. With multi-disc drag , you are applying braking pressure and heat dispersion over several surfaces rather than one to one surface braking on most drag systems today (i.e. metal to cork or metal to plastic). This system virtually eliminates start up inertia and stick slip problems.
Spool Tension Nut
Designed to be easily taken on and off with or without full gloves.The nut is press fit into the spool so it won’t fall out into the water or your gear bag.
Machined Reel Foot
Some will say this is a gimmick, but it’s really a matter of engineering principals.The Original. A solid is always stronger than two pieces attached together. Also, by eliminating the screws you’ve eliminated the corrosion points. We are well aware that reel feet bend and we will replace the frame if such a problem occurs. It also looks damn cool.
Large vs Mid Arbor
All Hatch reels are offered in both large or mid arbor configurations.The two different size spools are capable of running on the same frame, allowing an angler to run three or more line weights on a single reel.
Hook GuardKeep those hooks securely in place in this handly slot and out of the way of your hands.
This unique little design feature locks both together and creates a bomb-proof fit.Making a positive frame to spool connection is essential and on our reels we call it the “power flower.”
We’ve made the two pieces the same weight to achieve true balance in the spool.Unlike many manufacturers whose counterbalance is merely cosmetic, we’ve made the two pieces the same weight to achieve true balance in the spool.
