Hatch Finatic Gen 2 Fly Reels
Hatch reels offer consistently smooth performance with superb reel design and construction. In addition to a strong, light frame, their superb sealed drag system is second to none. We have used the first Generation Finatics for years with nothing but consistent performance. The second generation or Gen 2 Finatics offer a handful of improvements still, including:
Bombproof frame-to-spool connection is essential for maintaining strength, and true-spin consistency.
Multi-disc drag cassette comprised of Rulon® and precision stamped stainless steel discs applies braking pressure and heat dispersion over several surfaces. This virtually eliminates start up inertia and stick-slip problems.
Machined reel seat is solid--always stronger than two parts attached by screws, and this eliminates the common problem of corrosion at these points.
Ultraflon sleeve that covers the aluminum shaft and separates it from the aluminum crank handle, eliminating the chance for galvanic corrosion.
Gen 2 includes lip seals and sealed bearings as a one-two punch to protect against the elements and a whole new level of water protection.
Nine windows in Gen 2 allows us to eliminate weight without sacrificing strength.
Gen 2 incorporates an Ultraflon sleeve that covers the aluminum shaft and separates it from the aluminum crank handle, eliminating the chance for galvanic corrosion.
Per Hatch, the Mist finish on Gen 2 creates smoother edges and provides for a more consistent non-reflective finish throughout.
