    Default Hardy Ultralite?

    I been thinking of buying a Hardy Ultralite, Nice looking reel but I know absolutely zero about them. For those of you who have owned one of these reels, what are your thoughts? A couple reviews would be awesome, Thanks

    I've got one on my 5wt that I use for trout. Had it for about 3 years now, no complaints.

    Had the ultralite DD10000. Used it on my 2hander.
    Drag is not sealed. Eventually, the drag became non-existent.

    The spool was very cumbersome to take off too, you had to unscrew an exterior knob first, but if you backed it out too far, it would pop off cause it was held on by just the o-ring pressure after the threads were all disengaged. After loosening this knob, you still have to get your fingers in the spool frame to unlock the centre spindle lock which was pretty difficult to do with my somewhat fat fingers, and even more so if it was too tight.
