Reviews


When fish tested, the reels responded smoothly (with fiber composite drag systems) during line pull, and were equally impressive on the uptake. They are sturdy in hand, but by no means bulky, and an all-around solid option for someone looking for polish and performance, without emptying the checking account.

Midcurrent review the Hardy Ultralite Reels

The drag is smooth with a good range: light enough for a salmon to take freely but with plenty of stopping power...We like the Ultralites. They are affordable, handsome, light and effective.

Testimonials


These reels are beautiful and so well constructed and engineered. The smoothness of the release of line when casting, the drag systems efficiency and the retrieve winds are the best of all the reels i own. Not only these mechanical and physical features make it my favorite, but the price is definitely the best value on the market. I own at least 7 competitor models of reels and I will buy Hardy in the future. In fact I am purchasing a CC 1000 Ultra-lite today.
