Hatch Finatic Gen 2 at Angler's Lane
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.
STACKED DISC DRAG - The majority of the drags on the market today
incorporate what can be called one-to-one surface contact, meaning that
one surface (metal) is driven or drawn toward another surface (cork,
plastic, carbon fiber, graphite, etc.). Hatch reels take a completely
different approach by incorporating a stacked disc drag. The discs are
made up of a combination of stainless steel and Rulon®, and positioned
in a stacked configuration.
EBS (EFFECTIVE BRAKING SURFACE) - EBS is measured by the surface contact
area of one disc times the number of surfaces it contacts. Each Size
reel has it's own unique disc size and combination. The size and number
of discs determines the EBS in square inches. Benefits
include: More surface area for a smoother, more durable drag and
virtually eliminating start up inertia; heat distibution
spread over multiple surfaces, rather than one to one
contact (thereby eliminating stick slip problems caused by extreme heat
in high-speed runs); disc materials requiring NO lubrication or maintenance.
SEALED MULTI-DISC DRAG CASSETTE - Rulon and
stainless steel discs apply even drag pressure and heat distribution
over multiple surfaces water resistant, maintenance-free and
FINATIC spools and reels are compatible to Hatch's
previous MONSOON and PULSE models, meaning, the frames and spools are
interchangeable with earlier models Hatch reel fans may already own.
