    HATCH FINATIC 12 PLUS GEN 2 FLY REEL : 12-16WT


    The Hatch Finatic 12 Plus GEN 2 Fly Reel can't be beat when targeting huge bluewater fish. The Finatic 12 Plus GEN 2 is a masterpiece of USA fully machined craftsmanship, right down to the reel seat and perfectly suited for 12-16 weight rods.


    The Gen 2 series features a new drag system seal along with stainless-steel drag housing for a more enhanced usage. All Hatch fly reels feature a fully sealed drag cassette containing a stacked Rulon multi-disc drag system that allows maximum braking pressure and faster heat dispersion. This innovated type of design is created to eliminate start up inertia when the fish is hooked and reduce stick slip problems while you are battling the fish on the reel. Each Hatch fly reel comes with its own hook guard on the frame, a precise counterbalance on the spool, and a positive frame to spool connection for a bomb-proof fit. Saltwater perfection.


    Conventional wisdom says: Never take a knife to a gunfight. And when you're tackling big fish like the ones this reel was designed for, then I think that's really sound advice. GTs or tuna, just to name a few, can undo your average gear in a fraction of a second. You will not find a better fish-fighting tool on the market for these situations. Oh yeah, it's also great for big spey applications.


    FINATIC GEN 2 UPGRADES


    • New Mist Finish is a beautiful matte, non-glare finish that is smoother, stealthier, and looks awesome.
    • New cranks and counterbalance in the Gen 2 Finatic incorporates an Ultraflon sleeve that covers the aluminum shaft and separates it from the aluminum crank handle. This eliminates the chance for Galvanic corrosion and ensures a smooth crank.
    • New frame features a concave surface inside of the frame and move from 7 windows in the Gen 1 to 9 windows in the Gen 2. By adding two extra arms it eliminates unnecessary weight making the reel lighter without sacrificing strength.
    • New lip seals and sealed bearings completely seal this drag system against the elements for flawless performance in the harshest conditions.
    • Machined reel seat means that there is no second piece seating the reel to the rod. No more rotting screws or rattle between the foot and the rest of the frame.
    • Hook guards on every reel keep those hooks away from hands and tucked into the arbor of the reel.
    • Multi-disc drag comprised of Rulon and precision stamped stainless steel discs apples breaking pressure and heat dispersion over several surfaces and is now found on all models.
