EXTREMELY LIMITED AVAIALBILITY. Hatch is releasing a new reel design March/April. Place your order and we will contact you with availability and color options.

HATCH FINATIC GEN-2 FLY REELS are an evolutionary update from the original tried and true Finatic. Consistent with Hatch’s uncompromising commitment to premium quality there have been several significant performance improvements and aesthetic enhancements including: new 9 Window frame design, non-reflective mist finish, non stick cranks, concave frame design for additional weight relief, and teflon lip seals and shielded bearings that add a whole new level of protection against the elements.

NEW MIST FINISH For 2018 - Hatch incorporated a mist finish to the Gen-2 Fanatic. Misting creates smoother edges and provides for a more consistent non-reflective finish throughout. Plus it looks pretty darn cool!

FINATIC GEN 2 DESIGN FEATURES NEW CRANKS & COUNTERBALANCE - The Gen 2 Finatic incorporates an Ultraflon sleeve that covers the aluminum shaft and separates it from the aluminum crank handle. By doing this they’ve eliminated the chance for galvanic corrosion, so your crank will spin effortlessly for years to come.

NEW FRAME FEATURES - Hatch has gone from 7 windows in the Gen 1 Finatic to 9 windows in the Gen 2, and created a concave surface inside of the frame as well. By adding two extra arms in the frame they were able to eliminate unnecessary weight throughout, thereby making the reel lighter without sacrificing any strength.

NEW LIP SEALS + BEARINGS - Hatch has reimagined how their reels are sealed in extreme environments. For 2018 they’ve added lip seals and sealed bearings to all of the reels as a one two punch to protect against the elements and add a whole new level of water protection.

FRAME SPOOL CONNECTION - Creating a bomb proof frame to spool connection is essential for maintaining strength, and true-spin consistency.

MACHINED REEL SEAT - It’s a Hatch signature feature. A solid is always stronger than two parts attached by screws. By doing this it eliminates the common problem of screws rotting from corrosion and becoming loose.

HOOK GUARD - Keep those hooks tucked into the arbor of the reel and out of the way of your hands.

MULTI-DISC DRAG - A cassette comprised of Rulon® and precision stamped stainless steel discs is employed in all models. With multi-disc drag, you are applying breaking pressure and heat dispersion over several surfaces, virtually eliminating start up inertia and stick slip problems.
