TOUGH AS NAILS AND SKILLFULLY MARRIES THE TECHNOLOGY OF THE FUTURE WITH THE TRADITION OF THE PAST
As the premier reel in the Galvan range, the Torque Series reels represent the culmination of a lifetime of fly-fishing and passion for reel design. Simply stated, it represents the very best of modern fly reel architecture. The Torque reel series was created because Boni wanted to create a revolutionary reel with a more substantial drag system than was presently available on the market. And it had to be sexy. Thus the Torque series reels were born.

11 Plus Gen 2 Finatic
We had one thing in mind when we designed this reel â€” Tarpon.
The goal was to create a larger reel that bridged the gap between the 9 and 12 Plus models. We also wanted to make sure it had an oversized handle for greater grip control when fighting those big silver critters. The mid arbor option is also great for spey rods from 13.5–14.5 feet.
12 Plus Gen 2 Finatic
Designed for fish that are notorious for being really hard to handle.
Conventional wisdom says: Never take a knife to a gunfight. And when you’re tackling big fish like the ones this reel was designed for, then I think that’s really sound advice. GTs or tuna, just to name a few, can undo your average gear in a fraction of a second. You will not find a better fish-fighting tool on the market for these situations. Oh yeah, it’s also great for big spey applications.
2 Plus Gen 2 Finatic
If youâ€™re looking for the perfect trout reel, then you just found it.
Small water perfection. The 2 Plus is rated for 2 through 4 weight lines, weighs only 3.2 oz. without line, and measures 3” in diameter. Match up with your favorite lightweight fly rod and you’re ready to fish any small stream, lake, or favorite dry fly stretch of water. Fully CNC machined in Vista, CA with a proprietary Rulon/Stainless Steel stacked disk drag, the 2 Plus is available in 6 color options and Large arbor only.
3 Plus Gen 2 Finatic
If youâ€™re looking for the perfect trout reel, then you just found it.
The 3 Plus is capable of running 3–5 weight lines with ample backing capacity for the occasional whopper that might come along. At first glance you’ll notice this ain’t no dainty trout reel. This little wonder means business.
4 Plus Gen 2 Finatic
Designed to be the perfect 5 weight reel â€” but feels equally balanced with 4-6 weight lines as well.
The 4 Plus bridges the gap in size and weight between the 3 and 5 plus models. If you’re looking for the perfect reel for your 9′ 5 weight rod then look no further.
5 Plus Gen 2 Finatic
We call this bad boy the â€œdo it allâ€� reel â€” designed for running 5â€“7 line weights.
We’ve used this workhorse surf fishing in So Cal, light steelheading in Oregon, chucking nasty streamers to ravenous browns in Montana, and stalking bones on the flats in Belize.
7 Plus Gen 2 Finatic
The perfect crossover reel for both salt and fresh water fly fishing.
If I was stranded on a desert island and had only one reel to bring, it would be the 7 Plus. We have sold more of these bad boys than any other size in the Hatch line up. From bonefish to permit, steelhead to carp, this reel has you covered.
9 Plus Gen 2 Finatic
If you are truly serious about saltwater or spey fishing then this is your next reel.
Where the rubber meets the road my friends! If you’ve been dreaming of a reel that has the look, feel and performance of a Ferrari, then look no further. Capable of running 9–11 weight lines, and your choice of mid or large arbor spools, this reel is one versatile hombre.
