The next great Hardy Reel is this stunning new Hardy Ultralite CA DD series. With its worldwide reputation for top end quality and unrelenting performance, Hardy are introducing the replacement for the best selling Ultralite DD reels. The new Ultralite CA DD fly reel has been fully designed and developed by the Hardy Team in Alnwick and aims to be the finest freshwater, large arbor fly reel ever produced by Hardy!
The Ultralite CA DD fly reel features a host of improvements on the original DD that will appeal to serious anglers. The CA DD reel body is made from aerospace-grade 6061 bar stock aluminium for superior strength yet still keeping lightweight feel. The Ultralite CA DD fly reel has a stunning industrial design and its ultra large arbor is in-keeping with the latest trends, its conical arbor giving incredible line pick up and reducing drag gain on the longest runs, providing technical anglers with a lightweight, finely tuned reel that is capable of subduing the most demanding freshwater species all over the globe.
There are eight sizes in the range, from size 3000 to 10000, with the smallest size hitting the scales at just 130g (4.6oz). One important feature is the new 360 degree disc drag. The drag setting can be seen at a glance as the coloured dots on the drag knob clearly indicate between a heavy drag (red) and lighter drag setting (green) and most importantly the drag can be set from zero to maximum in just one turn of the knob. The reel also features a captive spool release that makes using spare spools a breeze.
The Hardy Ultralite CA DD fly reel is finished in either a two-tone Titanium or Black finish and comes with a soft neoprene case. Spare spools are also available in both colours.
