Hatch Finatic are absolutely beautiful machined aluminum reels loaded with features you would expect on a high-end reel. The spools fit into the one-piece frames very precisely and are locked in place with something Hatch calls the “power flower”. The result is a reel with almost no lateral flex, no matter how hard you push and pull it. The cassette drag is fully sealed and is made from multiple discs of Rulon and laser-cut stainless steel. All hatch reels are offered in large and mid-arbor configurations, which means you can run several line weights on the same reel if you choose.
