The Hatch Iconic is the long awaited successor to the Finatic Generation 2, improved in subtle ways and offered in four stunning color choices. Fully machined and built to fish a lifetime, the Iconic is the modern benchmark for high quality fly reels. The Iconic features a new porting map that optimizes strength-to-weight and a redesigned sealed drag for heavy saltwater use. Anywhere on the water, the Hatch Iconic is a treasured piece of equipment.
The new drag features carbon-filled material for smoother performance and better heat dissipation and is built into the frame of the reel for superior stability and more consistent performance over time. Sealing has been improved by removing superfluous components. The Iconic also features a 1-piece spool nut, all new corrosion-resistant handles and counterweights, and a reel foot that is machined on the frame. All of these details improve the performance and durability of Hatch reels, already famous for their enduring quality.
