The 3+ is capable of running 3–5 weight lines with ample backing capacity for the occasional whopper that might come along. At first glance you’ll notice this ain’t no dainty trout reel. This little wonder means business.
The 4+ bridges the gap in size and weight between the 3 and 5 plus models. If you’re looking for the perfect reel for your 9ft 5 weight rod then look no further.
The 5+ is a workhorse. From surf fishing in So Cal, light steelheading in Oregon, chucking nasty streamers to ravenous browns in Montana, and stalking bones on the flats in Belize.
If I was stranded on a desert island and had only one reel to bring, it would be the 7+. We have sold more of these bad boys than any other size in the Hatch line up. From bonefish to permit, steelhead to carp, this reel has you covered.
The 9+ is where the rubber meets the road my friends! If you’ve been dreaming of a reel that has the look, feel and performance of a Ferrari, then look no further. Capable of running 9–11 weight lines, and your choice of mid or large arbor spools, this reel is one versatile hombre.
With the 11+ the goal was to create a larger reel that bridged the gap between the original 9 and 12 Plus models. We also wanted to make sure it had an oversized handle for greater grip control when fighting those big silver critters.
We were the first and now one of the only reel manufacturers to make the reel body out of one piece. It is an expensive way to produce the reel but has the advantage of never having a reel seat loosen up due to galvanic corrosion. For the Iconic, we have reshaped the reel seat for a more contemporary look.
The new Hatch Iconic features the following updates:
IMPROVED SEALING: Through better design and concentricity, we have increased sealing by eliminating water entry points through subtracting superfluous components from past models.
IMPROVED STABILITY: The Iconic reel does not utilize a cassette to house the drag system as in past models - instead, it is now built into the body. This has decreased axial runout which creates a more stable and solid design.
NEW DRAG MATERIAL: Our new carbon-filled drag material not only dissipates heat faster but also creates a smoother feel. This is our smoothest drag system to date.
NEW SPOOL DESIGN: In many ways, the Iconic spool is similar to previous models, but with a few key differences. We have ported the spool arbor which will allow lines to dry better on the reel after use - think of it as ventilation. We have also cut aesthetic holes into the Mid Arbor spools, making it much simpler than before to distinguish between a large and mid arbor.
NEW SPOOL NUT: New look, similar function, but with a big improvement. On the Iconic we have implemented a one piece design in order to prevent pieces from coming apart.
NEW HANDLE/COUNTERWEIGHT: Our new handle design significantly reduces the risk of galvanic corrosion. While we have retained the aluminum handle, it now has a softer look and feel.
