Hardy Ultralite SDS (Sealed Drag System)

by Hardy
SPOOLS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST The Ultralight SDS (Sealed Drag System) reel is a lightweight, ultra large arbour design with an advanced woven carbon disk drag system that delivers smooth reliable performance under the harshest of conditions. Designed in Alnwick, England and tested in some of the most challenging saltwater conditions on the Planet, the SDS has an incredible line retrieval rate that allows the angler to recover line at the break neck speeds often required when chasing some of the hardest fighting fish to be found anywhere. Combined with stunning looks and exceptional durability the SDS is a true saltwater athlete, that would also grace the any modern two handed Salmon rod.
