The goal was to create a larger reel that bridged the gap between the 9 and 12 Plus models. We also wanted to make sure it had an oversized handle for greater grip control when fighting those big silver critters. The mid arbor option is also great for spey rods from 13.5–14.5 feet.
ONE-PIECE MACHINE REEL SEAT
A solid is always stronger than two parts bound together. Also by eliminating the screws, there is no worry about corrosion or the reel foot loosening. Ever.
SEALED MULTI-DISC DRAG CASSETTE
Rulon™ and stainless steel stacked discs apply even drag pressure and heat distribution over multiple surfaces. The Hatch sealed drag system is water tight, maintenance-free and self-lubricating.
