All the great benefits of the ultralite DD series, in a finish that keeps you hidden from the fish

Your favorite Ultralite Disc Drag Reel, now available in a traditional black finish!

The addition of this black satin, anti-glare edition to the Ultralite family will help anglers fishing to spooky fish in clear waters where ultimate stealth is required and the flash of reflected light from a shiny reel can spell disaster.

Ultralite DD reels offer a lightweight option to balance modern rods, and have a narrow width/large arbour design for a fast, level retrieve.

    Absolutely Beautiful Reel

    This thing is just plain sexy. Black and brass look absolutely great with each other. The other thing you notice when using this reel how large the arbor is the biggest arbor I have seen in its class size. Finally the width of the spool is great since it's not ultrawide like the old lamsons that I am used to fishing. The other interesting thing is the drag. I would give it 5 stars but it looks to be semi sealed. By semi sealed what I mean is the drag system seems to be a sealed unit but the weakness seems to be that the clutch bearing and seperate spool bearing are not sealed so it has potential exposure to water. I will try this out in the field soon enough but I think it will.

    Great Reel

    Lightweight and awesome looking reel! Handles multiple species of fish with ease. I would highly recommend getting one!




    Superb reel from Hardy!

    Great lightweight large arbor reel. Smooth breaking and fits the Hardy Zenith rods perfect! the newish black color is great because it does not spook fish with sun reflections. over all great, got the 5000, 6000 and the 7000.

    Great, great great

    I have two reels and 3 spare spools. Hooked up and landed some 5# plus Brown and Rainbows with the DD. Good feed out and excellent drag.
