HATCH FINATIC 9 PLUS GEN 2 FLY REEL : 9-11WT
he Hatch Finatic 9 Plus Gen 2 Fly Reel bridges the need for a single reel that can quick cast to bones and still stop a screaming tarpon. The Finatic 9 Plus Gen 2 is a masterpiece of USA fully machined craftsmanship, right down to the reel seat and perfectly suited for 9-11 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.
