The Ultralite Disc Drag (DD) fly reel combines Hardy’s lightweight yet durable design with amazing drag control. Throw in some amazing aesthetics and you have one of the best reels on the market. It’s no wonder this reel won ‘Best in Show’ in freshwater reels at the 2011 International Fly Tackle Dealers Exhibition in New Orleans.
The Hardy Ultralite DD reel is made from 6061 Bar Stock aluminum and features a large arbor design for anglers who want to pick up line FAST. The narrow spool width keeps a low profile while the reel back has been screwed through its frame for the ultimate hold. The advanced composite fiber drag system maintains a steady drag even when pulled by a 10lb bonefish. Multiple line weight availability means these reels can be used on both light weight and heavy weight rods. Anglers can expect the ultimate experience in drag and line control.
In addition to strength and great looks, the Hardy Ultralite DD reel is also extremely easy to handle. It offers tool-less conversion from right to left handed action and features a quick release spool design for easy switch-outs. This ultimately practical reel comes with a protective neoprene case for when it is not on the water.
