Hatch Reels at Anglers Lane Hatch Finatic at Angler's Lane
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.
