Big game requires big drags. The Hatch 9 Plus Finatic delivers premium performance when it matters most. This high end fly reel has the ability to lock down unruly fish when they head to the deep water. When pursuing species like permit, tarpon, giant trevally, and jacks you need a fly reel that can handle fish that don't give up. 9 Plus Finatics are perfect matches with 9, 10, and 11 weight fly rods and also find their way onto many steelheaders spey rods in that 12'6" - 14' range. With Hatch's patented stacked seal drag, you get optimum drag force packed into a water tight unit for years of trouble free use. When tackling big game, the 9 Plus is always on our tackle list.

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.
