We would be more than happy to help you. Please contact us at email@example.com .
IS THE ICONIC REEL BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE?
No, the Iconic Reel is not compatible with any previous models. WHY? Most Iconic sizes are taller and skinnier than previous Hatch models, meaning the spool will not sit correctly on an old frame or vice versa. In order to upgrade many of the components of our reel design, we had to get away from previous shapes in both the body and other internal components.
WHAT IS NEW?

HOW CAN I CLEAN MY REEL? (BEST PRACTICES FOR KEEPING IT IN GOOD CONDITION)
Hatch recommends removing the spool from the frame and rinsing your reel with freshwater after each use in saltwater. To thoroughly remove salt residue from the line and backing, we recommend moving tap water only. Do not soak your Hatch reel or let it sit in still water.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SEND IN MY REEL FOR MAINTENANCE?
Maintenance is minimal for Hatch reels, most procedures can be accomplished by the angler following the instructions above. Should the reel become dysfunctional in any way, please send it in with our Repair Form included and we will fix up your reel within a week of receiving it.
DO I NEED TO REMOVE MY DRAG?
You should never need to remove your drag from your reel. If you experience any issues, please send your reel in with our Repair Form included and we will fix up your reel within 4-6 weeks of receiving it.
MY REEL DOESN’T SEEM TO BE WORKING PROPERLY, WHAT DO I DO?
If repairs are needed, you must fill out the online Repair Form and send in reel with paperwork. Shipping/Handling fees will be required.
BACKING CAPACITY—DO I NEED THAT MUCH?
Hatch backing recommendations are based on a floating line installation and are given in yardage lengths. Our capacities are generous for most fishing situations because, let’s face it, do you really want to run out of backing? For unique line installations, spey lines, extra thick floating lines etc., please give us a call for our recommendation.
I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT MID AND LARGE ARBOR IS?
The Hatch Iconic offers a mid and large arbor spool in 5 Plus through 11 Plus. Our goal is to make each reel size as versatile as possible with multiple line types. Both spools are the same widths, allowing them to interchange on the same frame. The depths of the spools are different. Our mid arbor spools are deeper than the large arbor to allow for more room when installing thicker fly lines. You can identify a mid arbor spool by the portholes in the design.
