By using cutting-edge technology, Hardy has always pushed the envelope with the strength and power in its rods. The same can be said when it comes to its reels. Hardy’s new Fortuna X reel is a prime example of how dedicated the company is to taking stopping power to a new level. Geared toward big-game enthusiasts, the Fortuna X features a completely sealed drag system that builds all the way to 32 pounds. Inside, stacked composite washers allow anglers to change pressure from zero to locked down with a smooth and controlled adjustment. Originally, Hardy called the reel handle a winch — because that’s precisely what it is. The Fortuna X is available in four sizes, all of which are built to get down on big fish fast.
