Designed for use in some of the most demanding conditions around the globe, the Fortuna Regent delivers effortless control, power, and rapid line retrieval when you need it the most. The Fortuna Regent is built around a multi-pad, carbon fibre disc drag system housed within a sealed, waterproof hub design, which offers the highest level of sealing yet seen on a Hardy fly reel. Drag is adjusted via a tensioned regulator that results in positive, linear drag application within a one turn range whilst delivering impressive top end drag. Finally, the large arbor spool delivers exceptional line pick up, and the narrow spool profile ensures easy level stacking of the line during the heat of the battle. Offering flawless reliability on your next saltwater adventure, the Fortuna Regent is a worthy successor to the original Fortuna series.
