Hardy Ultralite DD Fly Reel -

The Hardy Ultralite DD Fly Reel literally stops you in your tracks, thanks to its oh-so-sexy contours, stunning design, and great value. Besides looking damn fine, the Ultralite DD possesses a wide-ranging advanced fiber composite drag system that satisfies any freshie and most salty angler's requirements (no pun intended). This large arbour reel has little drag time in the upstart of the reel, a smooth feel, and an agreeable 'clicking' sound when you reel your line in or when a fish takes your fly for a run.

Hardy Ultralite DD Fly Reel Reviews:


I have had reels in the past claiming they were lightweight, but where this reel differs is not only is it Ultralight as it claims but the craftsmanship is perfect. Some of the reels that were claiming lightweight felt week and not as well put together, almost loose and fragile and lacking a good drag system. This reel is not only appealing to the eyes but to your feel of it as well, super super lightweight but so sturdy and strong. It can easily be switched from LHR to RHR, I love the large arbor as well it really picks up the line quickly and so smooth. And as for Hardys' drag system, where other lightweight reels fall short the DD drag system steps it up, controlled and smooth without sticking points or blowouts. If your are looking for a lightweight reel look no further this is a perfect reel for your rod.

This is one of the best made reels that I have seen. Beautifully machined, amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail. You can really tell when you pick it up and feel how light it is. I've seen reels that are very lightweight but you feel like you could snap them in half, not the case with this. It is super sturdy and everything just feels solid. The drag system is so smooth and doesn't hang up at all. One reason I decided on this reel was the large arbor. Its the biggest one in this size. I got the 4000 and it balances my 9' 5wt. perfectly. This is the nicest reel that I've seen hands down.
