NEW CRANKS & COUNTERBALANCE
The Gen 2 Finatic incorporates an Ultraflon sleeve that covers the aluminum shaft and separates it from the aluminum crank handle. By doing this we’ve eliminated the chance for galvanic corrosion, so your crank will spin effortlessly for years to come.
NEW FRAME FEATURES
You might have noticed from the photos we’ve gone from 7 windows in the Gen 1 Finatic to 9 windows in the Gen 2.
What you probably didn’t notice is that we’ve created a concave surface inside of the frame as well. By adding two extra arms in the frame it allows us to eliminate unnecessary weight through this feature, thereby making the reel lighter without sacrificing any strength.
NEW LIP SEALS + BEARINGS
Over the past few years we’ve seen some big changes in fly fishing. Specifically, the amount of time anglers spend in the water in pursuit of fish.

For 2018 we’ve added lip seals and sealed bearings to all our reels as a one two punch to protect against the elements and add a whole new level of water protection.
FRAME SPOOL CONNECTION
Creating a bomb proof frame to spool connection is essential for maintaining strength, and true-spin consistency
