If I could have one fly reel for trout, without a doubt the Hatch 5 Plus Finatic is my choice. With the 5 Plus Finatic you can put it on your favorite 5 or 6 weight rod, trout spey, or line it up with meat chucking 7 weight. This workhorse of the Hatch Outdoor lineup is such a versatile reel. Plenty of capacity and perfectly balance on 9' or longer rods. Heck, this reel can even handle most bonefishing situations! When you need a reel that gets business done, the Hatch 5 Plus is the perfect tool for the job.
Spool Size - Large Arbor
Four features to the New Gen 2 Finatic Series
- New Lip Seals + Bearings
- Hatch adds more and better seals to the new Gen 2 series with the added lip seal and sealed bearing. Combing these two seals keeps moisture out of the drag housing for years of trouble free performance.
- New Handle and Counterbalance
- By adding a Ultraflon sleeve to the handle shaft and counterbalance the chances for corrosion in these two critical spots has been greatly reduced.
- New Nine Window Design
- By adding more ported windows to the frame design and machining the inside to a concave surface the new Gen 2 Finatics are now lighter without sacrificing strength or structural integrity.
- New Mist Finish
- The new Mist Finish from Hatch smooths out the edges and machining while giving the reel a non-reflective finish for improved on-the-water stealth.
