Hatch 12 Plus Finatic Fly Reel
WCO spends a lot of time making sure we understand the equipment we sell. You will see lots of video made of reviews that tout some knowledge of how these reels work. If you don't actually go out and do it WCO isn't sure those folks are qualified to talk about the product they are selling. This is NOT what we do at WCO; we have tested the equipment we use in the toughest conditions there is to test them.
The reason we mention this is that the toughest test of any fly reel is big open bluewater. The fish are fast, powerful and have incredible stamina. With that being said we understand acutely how important it is to fight fish as quickly as your tackle will allow. Most reels can't be cranked down far enough to then allow for them to take drag efficiently. Sure there are reels you can crank way down but they essentially stop working. The larger 11 and 12 plus Finatic''s don't have that problem. When fighting Tuna or other large pelagic fish the angler can not let the fish go and go without putting the hurt to that fish. Allowing them to sound is a HUGE mistake but most tackle can not in anyway make it difficult for bluewater species to do this. The angler MUST have a reel that slows and wears out a fish at the tightest drag setting. For WCO this reel is the Hatch 12 Plus Finatic and we trust NOTHING else!
