A stealthy fish-fighting machine.

The Hardy Ultralite DD Black Edition Fly Reel has a black satin, anti-glare finish, which means reflected won't light bounce off the reel and spook the trout in the river or lake. This quality, lightweight, strong reel also features an advanced fiber composite drag system that offers a wide variance of drag resistance so you can handle small to large freshwater fish with ease.

  • 6061 bar stock aluminum construction features higher-grade aluminum that provides greater tensile strength against any bumps or scrapes against rocks while you fish
  • A black satin, anti-glare finish helps anglers around easily-spooked fish in clear waters where the flash of reflected light from a shiny reel can spell disaster
  • Narrow width and ultra-large arbor spool design enables lightening-fast line retrieval
  • Strong and lightweight design for superb balance on modern fly rods
  • Advanced fiber composite drag system features a wide variance of drag resistance from light tension to heavy-duty drag
  • Rim-over configuration allows you to palm the reel and slow it down to manipulate the amount of line during softer takes or for softer mouth fish
  • Easy tool-less conversion from left- to right-hand wind
  • Quick-release captive spool system for convenience
  • Reel back-up screwed through frame for maximum security
  • Includes neoprene pouch for protection during storage or transport

Hard to beat

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've got the 4000 for my 3-4 weights, and the 7000 for my 6-8 weights... I searched long and hard & tried several models from several brands before I landed on these. These are by far my favorite reels of anything I've ever fished with. For how big the arbor is and how quickly they retrieve line they are super light & durable. Hardy knocked it out of the park on these and they only charge $225.. still crazy to me. Any other brand would charge double.

Can't beat the price...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

...for what you get. It's extremely light, the large arbor size picks up a lot of line, the drag is solid, and I like the way it sounds. It looks sexy too.

Can't beat the price...

Great reel!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this at the beginning of the year and have been using it since. Great build quality, the black coating holds up very well.
Arbor is a nice size, very lightweight, and I highly recommend it.

First Impressions

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

This reel is slick, amazingly light and very cool looking. It's not flashy but it stands out. The arbor is very large and the retrieve feels smooth. Can't wait to put it to use.
