Hatch 9 Plus Finatic Fly Reel
We have simply beaten these reels up and can;t divise any other test than to test them on the biggest beasts we can find. The Hatch 9 Plus has withstood Golden Dorado in Bolivia, Steelhead in BC, Tarpon in Mexico, Permit in the Keys and a bunch of other critters in between. We don;t just sell tackle and make up stories at WCO we have live the life and in living this life we do it with Hatch reels on our rods.
The 9 Plus Finatic is an important size because it is generally the size someone needs when they step out of freshwater trout fishing and into saltwater and two handed steelhead and salmon fishing. The other thing to note is that the 9 plus is a little heavier than most reels. Most reel manufacturers try to make their larger reels as large as possible and that doesn't work for loger two handed rods in the 11.5 to 14 foot range. It is no so heavy though that is doesn't balance with an 9 to 11 weight rod. We generally use the 9 for rods in that rannge. We recommend putting Hatch Premuium Backing on reels 9 and above for sure and even the 7 Plus, but the 9 is perfect for that smaller backing.
