Default Re: Hatch Reels

I have 2 hatch reels. A finatic 3+ on my ZG helios 9' 5wt and a 5+ on my ZG helios 9'7 wt. Haven't really tested the drag on it, and the reel maybe a bit overkill for the bass and trout here in the mid atlantic..but the reels are no doubt the best I have. For all the reasons already listed here I'll probably get a couple more down the road. Might even stick one on a 3wt...yes I know it's overkill but I like nice reels. Others will disagree with me on this but I looked at Nautilus and felt like there were too many parts/screws and I prefer a totally sealed drag and a large drag knob.
