Hardy Ultralite CADD


Classic Hardy elegance with some modern updates.


This super lightweight reel from Hardy is made out of a solid piece of bar stock 6061and finished with a durable two-tone anodizing both of which will take a beating without leaving you stranded with a broken reel. A 360-degree color-coded drag knob helps to easily fine-tune the drag while playing a fish or while getting rigged up for the day. The captive spool release makes changing between spools a no-brainer.

Full bar stock 6061 construction and a stunning industrial design, combined with an all-new 360-degree color-coded drag system. The CA DD is Hardy’s finest freshwater large arbor reel yet.

Recommended use:

When you want an easy to adjust drag on a good looking and light-weight, affordable reel.
