Default Hardy Fortuna X2 or Hatch 9 Plus

I don't which one to choose. Both of them have good reviews. I will be fishing surf and flats and maybe tarpon fishing. Which one?

My Furry Friend, I generally have some pithy advise on reel choices but you have stumped me! I own both of these reels (7+ though) and fish primarily for bonefish with them. They are both great reels. In my case they balance with two different 8-weight rods so the only way I can select between them is which rod they will be used on and, though both are ruggedly handsome, they do have different aesthetics. These are clearly two of the top stacked drag low maintanance reels...all I can tell you is you can't go wrong between them.
