Introducing the Bates Hundo—roughly twenty percent smaller, one hundo percent Bates with the same quality and craftsmanship you’ve come to expect.
The Hundo features a gunmetal grey anodized aluminum frame, fully CNC’d from 6061-T6 bar stock on our 9 axis machine. And just to be sure there’s no gimmicks or simple metallic coatings, we’ve left a few of the machine paths roughed into the frame making the Hundo an industrial marvel.
Beyond just a smaller, 100 sized frame, this reel boasts our new dual braking system along with a shallower spool so the finesse fisherman can easily dial in lighter lines and lures. We’ve upgraded some internal components as well, including lighter aluminum gears and improved bearings, which are a combination of 10 HAC Stainless Steel bearings plus 2 high precision NMB ball bearings, and 1 one-way Stainless Steel ball bearing. If your target species or preferred rigging demands a slighter, but more fine-tuned machine, you won’t be disappointed in the Hundo.
