That is quite the collection of Hatch Reels! I don't have that much dedication to one manufacturer so I applaud you for that.

I agree, there are a ton of great reels out there. That is why I started a Winston/Abel thread. I really want to start taking some Abel's home, but as I stated in that thread, it is hard to get away from Hatch!

They are great reels, with phenomenal drags, they are durable and for as simple as they look, they are purty!

Quite an impressive collection and mounted on great G.Loomis Streamdance rods on top of it! I agree with you that Hatch Reels are among the few elite makes along with Abel and a handful of others that get most everything right. I have two Hatch Reels, 5+ and 7+. The 7+ is a perfect match for my Scott S4s #8 both in balance, performance and aesthetics while 5+ belongs on my Sage Z-Axis #5 but has too much weight for my ONE #5, it gets a Nautilus.

Z-Axis and 5+ doing what they are supposed to do.

Yeah, there are a mix of StreamDance, WhisperCreek, NRX and RoaringRiver rods. I really do like my Loomis sticks, but I think the next one or two will be Winstons. I am feeling the need to take a different adventure, thus the reason for the Abel thoughts as well!

Keep an eye on the internet. While I have not purchased mine that way, I have a few friends that have and they have gotten some smoking deals!

What?! No custom limited edition Hatch reels? ;-)

I was a big Hatch fan for a while. Ended up with 3 finatics, but after getting the Saracione and the GD limited Edition Abel, I'm not as jazzed about them. DGMW, they're worth the money and look sweet. And yes, I do marvel a bit when I put them on a rod.

I was drooling over one of the limited edition reels a few weeks ago. Then again, I'd rather drop that coin on a used Bogdan.

Anyway, I'll put some photos of mine up here soon.

At some point more than likely.

I'd really like to get the PNW/Steelhead reel in a 7 Plus!
