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
