New Hardy Reel to be Launched at GAC Open Weekend!

We are pleased to announce that we will be launching a brand new Hardy fly reel at our Open Weekend Event in September, the Hardy Ultralite CLS! We have had a good play with the prototype and this reel is sure to be a best seller - bigger even than the top selling Hardy Demon reel!
The stunning new Ultralite CLS
Joining the best selling Hardy Ultralite DD and Ultralite CC reels this year is the new Hardy Ultralite CLS. A reliable, practical cassette reel in two trout sizes (a salmon size will follow later) with a stunning aesthetic design and an innovative spool locking mechanism that does away with any of the problems that have dogged cassette type fly reels in the past. CLS stands for Cassette Locking System. This Hardy-designed feature instantly locks/unlocks the spool into place at the flick of a switch, meaning the spool is held securely, but easy to remove. It also reduces the stress placed upon working parts within the system to a minimum.
Unique spool locking mechanism
The reels also include the line ID system first seen on the Greys GX500 and GX700 reels - to mark the line type on the spool with secure, removable, reusable pins.  To see the full features of this reel, watch the video below. Supplied with three spare spools, this reel is set to become the bestselling Hardy reel of all time!
Comes supplied with 2 spools and a carry case

The new reel features include:
  • Centralised twin Rulon disc drag for smooth, powerful line control
  • Large arbour design for rapid retrieval and minimal line memory
  • Large backing capacities
  • Hardy fly line ID system - mark the spools with the line type using supplied pins
  • 6061 bar stock aerospace grade aluminium construction, fully anodised
  • Tool-less conversion from left to right hand wind
  • Modified polycarbonate spools with captive release
  • Supplied with three spools, and sufficient ID pins to make up three lines
  • Supplied with Hardy neoprene reel & spool case
