Although the Hardy Ultralite CC Fly Reel is an updated version of the very popular Marksmen reel series, it is one of the most unique and most practical reels available on the market today. It won ‘Best Freshwater Reel’ in 2011 by Angling Trade Magazine and ‘Best in Show’ in Freshwater Reels at the 2011 Fly Tackle Dealers Exhibition.
This reel is meant for lightweight lines from 1 wt to 5 wt, and is so light that is perfect for even the smallest streams. You can carry and cast this reel all day long and not feel it. What you will feel is the smooth casting and ridiculously easy line retrieval that this reel offers. The large arbor design carries a lot of line and the narrow spool design helps to keep the reel balanced on today’s modern rods while creating a level wind.
The reel is constructed of 6061 aluminum and the reel backup is screwed through its frame to ensure strength and reliability. The unique click and pawl drag system is wide ranging and allows for extremely precise drag settings and easy playing of all sizes of fish. The Hardy Ultralite CC fly reel is also easy to operate and handle. It features quick release spools and tool-less right to left hand conversion. Each reel comes with a lifetime warranty from Hardy and a neoprene storage case.
