Hatch Gen 2 Finatic Reels - 12 Plus

Hatch

 

The Hatch Gen 2 Finatic Reels are the latest version of Hatch's popular Finatic reels.  The 12 Plus size is rated for 12 to 16 weight lines, weighs 14.8 oz., and measures 5.0” in diameter. The 12 Plus is ready to tackle the toughest fish in the ocean like tuna, marlin, big tarpon, and Giant Trevally.  Fully CNC machined in Vista, California with a proprietary Rulon/Stainless Steel stacked disk drag, the 12 Plus is available in 6 color options.   

The specific engineering that goes in to every component of the Hatch Gen 2 Finatic reels is impressive. It seems as if the guys at Hatch took it upon themselves to completely re-engineer the fly reel. Other than their beautiful looks and attention to quality, the drag is what most stands out to us. First off, it is a completely sealed drag system. Then add the use of Rulon and stainless steel multi stacked discs. The idea behind multi disc is that you are applying breaking pressure and heat dispersion over multiple surfaces rather than just one, such as in a traditional disc drag system. Genius! The reel foot is fully machined with the frame of the reel. No screws to create week or corrosion points. There is a Hatch reel to fit any fishing situation and they come in some very cool color finishes.
