Re: Hatch Reels
I recently purchased a Hatch +7 and Winston BIIx 12ft. 6in 6/7 wt. for summer steelhead fishing. The Nautilus NV 8/9 G-7 is 2 oz. lighter and no doubt a fine reel. However, a heavier reel may balance the rod better. I feel lightness is more important in the rod than the reel. I am very pleased with the quality and performance of both the rod and reel.
