The Hatch 3 Plus Gen 2 Finatic is more than a line holder for your lightweight trout rods. It’s a brilliantly designed and engineered heirloom fly reel you’ll have for the rest of your life. It’s stunning piece of fly fishing equipment you will take pride in ownership. Its an insurance policy in case you hook an unexpectedly big fish.
No, you don’t need a stacked drag system to stop a 14 inch trout. But the alternating layers of rulon disks and custom cut stainless steel washers evenly apply breaking pressure across multiple surfaces, and represent the very best in modern drag technology. Why not?
Other design features of the Generation 2 Finatic include a fully machined reel seat that increases strength and reduces the possibility of corrosion, new lip and bearings seals that keep water out of the drag system, increased porting that reduces weight without compromising strength, and a non reflective bead blasted mist finish complete with a type 2 anodize that gives the reel ultra durable corrosion resistant protection and a highly attractive appearance.
