Re: Hatch Reels
I'm using the Hatch 7+ (Monsoon & one Finatic) with both 8wt & 9wt rods. I'm fishing the Cal Delta & San Luis Reservoir for stripers. Honestly, I haven't caught any fish that have really tested the drag - largest a 22lb'r.
The reels are definitely well made. Tolerances seem tight & they've been trouble free. I've had zero problems with them.
