New Stuff: Hardy Ultralight SDS Fly Reel

HESD010 Ultralite SDS

The new Hardy Ultralite SDS fly reel features a sealed drag system that is waterproof, saltwater-safe and built to withstand extreme temperatures.

Aerospace-grade 6061 polished and anodized bar stock aluminum gives the reel extreme structural strength, which the low-inertia, multi-carbon, six-sided disc brake system generates up to 14 pounds of drag on the largest model. Drag adjustment is easily monitored with the 360-degree, color-coded drag control knob.

The large-arbor design provides rapid line recovery, and the captivated spool includes a quick-release feature and can be easily converted to right- or left-hand operation using the supplied tool.

The Ultralight series comprises three models: The SDS 8000 is designed for 7-, 8- or 9-weight line, weighs 9.73 ounces and measures 4.5” across. With weight-forward WF9 fly line, the reel holds an additional 180 yards of 20-pound Dacron backing.

The SDS 10000 is designed for 9-, 10- or 11-weight line, weighs 10.73 ounces and measures 4.7” across. With weight-forward WF11 fly line, the reel holds an additional 280 yards of 30-pound Dacron backing.

The SDS 12000 is designed for 11-, 12- or 12-plus-weight line, weighs 12.29 ounces and measures 5.3” across. With weight-forward WF12 fly line, the reel holds an additional 380 yards of 30-pound Dacron backing.

Price: $450 – $495
Extra spools start at $189
