About the Hardy Ultralite ASR
The unique, Hardy Ultralite ASR is a light weight and incredibly tough fly reel built with a new ASR (Assisted Spool Release) cassette system that actively frees the spool at the flick of a switch.
This cassette reel is built from a durable aluminium 6061 bar stock main construction with a heavy ported design throughout for an incredible light weight.
The unique Assisted Spool Release cassette system is sure to be loved by anglers, offering an ultra fast and super easy spool changing mechanism that lets you change from a floater to a fast sinker at the flick of a spring loaded switch.
The spool is quickly ejected using a flick switch button and will automatically engage the new spool with a simple push fit. There is also a multi pad, colour coded 340 degree disc drag which allows you for fully set your drag to your fishing requirements using the knob. The coloured dots indicate the settings between a heavy drag (red coloured dots) or a light drag (green coloured dots) and lets you see where your drag is set without interrupting your fishing.
The reel also utilises a reusable line ID system and features a high impact, clear composite cassette spool. The ASR also includes a new lightweight size specifically designed for the challenges of modern river fishing.
The Hardy Ultralite ASR is a stunning titanium colour and each model is supplied with two additional spare spools and a case.

About the Hardy Ultralite MA DD
The Hardy Ultralite MA DD fly reels are powerful and designed to go the distance. Featuring a medium arbor spool for a larger capacity for specialist fly line tapers, this fly reel is faultless in innovation and design.
This fly reel is a beautiful two tone anodised, bar stock aluminium construction, finished off in a sleek titanium colour with striking gold colour accents. One of the most innovative features on the MADD reel is the new 340 degree colour coded drag system.
This unique system allows you to easily set the drag you'd like with just one simple turn of the knob. The coloured dots indicate the settings between a heavy drag (red coloured dots) or a light drag (green coloured dots) and gives you smooth, impeccable control. You'll be able to quickly see where your drag is set without stopping or interrupting your fishing.
The mid arbor spool gives anglers increased capacity for switch style fishing, Pike, Salmon and Trout specialist fly line tapers or allows additional room on the spool for reserve backing. The machined alloy spool has machined holes in the spool body to help dry your line out and reduce the weight of the reel.
When you need to load your line or change spools, the Hardy Ultralite MA DD features a screw captive spool release. This has been practically designed so the cap doesn't come all the way off so it reduces your chances of losing it and holds your spool much more securely.
The exceptional and ground breaking Hardy Ultralite MA DD fly reel is available in the Titanium colour and various model sizes that you can select from our drop down menu.
