The Hatch 7 Plus Gen 2 Finatic is possibly the most versatile fly reel on planet Earth.
The stacked disc drag system features alternating layers of rulon disks and custom cut stainless steel washers that evenly apply breaking pressure across multiple surfaces.
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.
The 7 Plus holds plenty of backing for bonefish and other saltwater species, especially when spooled with Hatch 68 lb premium backing. The 7 Plus perfectly balances 6 and 7 weight spey rods and the mid arbor leaves plenty of space for backing, running line, and large diameter shooting heads.
