I have a couple of Ari T. Hart reels. A good friend of mine is unable to fish due to health reasons and wanted someone to have and use his equipment. He gifted me a F2, a S1 and a F4 reels and insisted that I fish them. They are all well above my ability, but I use them as directed. I fish the F2 with 5-6wt, the S1 as my 8wt and the F4 with my Spey rod. They are truly magnificent designs and I’m lucky to have them.
