NEW! HATCH ICONIC 9 PLUS SPARE SPOOL : 9-11WT
Durability, superior craftsmanship, and stunning beautiful are all new features of the Iconic series reels, made in USA by one of the top manufacturers fly reel design. The Hatch Iconic 9 Plus Fly Reel is specifically made for hard fighting, reel screaming, fish in the salt or freshwater. Designed from the ground up with similar features from the previous Finatic reel series, the Iconic Plus series blends traditional looks with specific upgrades outmatching any reels in its category. The Iconic 9 Plus is the toughest, most versatile, and smoothest reel for chasing everything on the flats like bonefish, tarpon, permit and GT. The Iconic 9 Plus is available in both a Large Arbor and Mid Arbor spool design allowing to swap different lines and backing capacities to target a larger range of fish species. As a leader of fly reel manufacturing in the industry, the Iconic Plus series will stand the test of time.
Starting with a new look, the Iconic Reel features the famous Hatch window pattern with 6 spoke fins, along with a new drag knob design for a crisp "H" brand logo appearance. Hatch upgraded to a new bright dip finishing process that brings out the shine of the machined parts while keep the strong coloring of the matte anodize look. In the start of the machining process, the Iconic reel body is fully machined into a one piece frame, without any additional parts. This full body design is an advantage of never having a reel seat loosen due to galvanic corrosion or other parts loosening up over time. Hatch then milled the reel handle in a new machining process to help prevent galvanic corrosion along the handle, while having the reel handle have a softer look and feel.
New in this series, Hatch upgraded the spool design with machined ported holes in the spool allowing for lines to dry faster. The Mid Arbor spools are then machined with cut aesthetic holes on the side of the spool making it much easier to distinguish between a large and mid arbor spool. Hatch improved the spool nut into a one piece milled construction in the spool, eliminating nut loosening and lost pieces.
Last, Hatch focused eliminating any contaminants from the drag system. In the previous Finatic series, the drag system was built on a separate cassette system. Hatch eliminated this feature and now builds the drag directly into the body of the reel. This greatly increases the stability and sealed protection of the drag system. The drag system now contains a new carbon-filled drag material that not only help dissipate heat faster, but also creates a smoother feel.
