The little guy of the bunch. The Hatch 1 Plus Finatic weighs in at just 2.8 ounces. A great size reel for those 0- to 2-weight rods out there.
Hatch makes some of the finest reels in the world. The specific engineering that went in to every component 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 completely sealed. 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 element and they come in some very cool color combinations.
