It's got history.

When you’ve been making reels for more than a century, you get pretty good at it. The Hardy Ultralite SDSL exemplifies this skill, with fully machined aluminum construction giving it a stunning appearance. The carbon fiber disc drag system is fully sealed and able to generate up to 16lb of force, and the regulator is color coded with 340 degrees of adjustment. The system is saltwater safe and features a captive spool release system so you can easily change your line while on the water.
