The NEW Generation 2 Finatic fly reel – an evolutionary update from our original tried and true Finatic. Consistent with our 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 that add a whole new level of protection against the elements.
Hatch Gen 2 Finatic Improvements
CRANKS & COUNTERBALANCE
Gen 2 Finatic reels now feature an Ultraflon sleeve covering the aluminum shaft of the handle that separates it from the aluminum crank handle. This material and design will eliminate any chance of corrosion between the two points - your crank handle will spin effortlessly virtually forever.
Hatch Gen 2 Finatic fly fishing reels now feature 9 windows (compared to the 7 of the previous generation). The less immediately visible change is the surface inside of the frame is now concave. The addition of two arms in the frame allows the concave surface to reduce weight in the reel while not sacrificing any strength.
LIP SEALS & BEARINGS
Anglers are spending more and more time in the water pursuing their quarry, making drag sealing more important (especially in harsh environments like saltwater). Newly improved lip seals and sealed bearings are now standard in Hatch Gen 2 Finatic fly fishing reels to create an effective and reliable system to keep your drag functioning as it should under all conditions.
