The mid-arbor version of the Gen 2 Finatic is made for the enthusiastic Spey angler and the angler who chases larger saltwater species. If you need increased backing capacity or room for larger Spey lines/ running lines, this version is the reel for you. Except for the arbor size, it’s identical to the large arbor Gen 2 Finatic we all known and love.
Gen 2 Design - The new iteration of the Finatic comes with an improved drag system, tons of custom colors, and two different arbor sizes. Hatch redesigned the original Finatic to be stronger, more durable, and more versatile than ever before. In doing so, they’ve beefed up the weight, too, to help balance heavier fly rods and to increase strength and durability.
Type II Anodized Finish - The anodizing on the Finatic is rigid, strong, and saltwater safe to preserve the structure of the reel and to increase durability. Type II anodizing holds up well to dings and scrapes. It also protects the reel from harsh weather conditions and ensures high performance for the lifetime of the reel.
Machined Aluminum - The Finatic is built with machined Aluminum which has a few benefits. Machined aluminum is both abrasion-resistant and corrosion-resistant. If you happen to drop or ding your reel, this aircraft aluminum resists corrosion even when abraded. The aluminum holds up to saltwater corrosion and weather and wear.
Type - The drag system on the Gen 2 Finatic is built on a multi-disc system. Hatch’s multi-disc drag makes for a smoother, more durable drag that’s maintenance-free and completely sealed. Hatch is known for this bombproof drag system and they’ve completely upgraded it in this second generation of the reel.
Materials - The Finatic’s drag system is built on a carbon fiber/stainless steel disc system. The combination helps the drag system stay smooth and durable without wearing down or ‘freezing’ up. Hatch’s system is incredibly efficient and the materials they use are a large contributing factor to the Finatic’s world-renowned drag.
Mid-Arbor - The mid-arbor version of the Finatic affords anglers increased backing capacity for larger species like GT. The mid-arbor is also great for two-handed Spey applications where larger lines, running lines, and backing are required. This version caters to both the Spey angler and the big fish big water angler.
Hatch Warranty - As of December 2019, all Hatch reels are guaranteed against manufacturer defects in materials and craftsmanship for the life of the product by its original owner. The Warranty doesn’t cover damage caused by accident, misuse, or modification.
