Hardy reels represent the epitome of durable and classic fishing tackle. If you don't own at least one, you are missing out.
If you have Hardy reels you are looking to sell, please contact us. We now have an office in the UK in which to accept consignment tackle, without the hassle of shipping to the US. We can also make you an immediate cash offer. If any of you are looking to buy a specific model, also let us know as we have many Hardy collector contacts worldwide.
If you are looking to become more knowledgeable on Hardy reels, there are many reference sources available. The best in my opinion is the "Evans' Tapes" DVD set produced by Brian Taylor - for sale here.
Brian has also assembled a brief and very helpful pictorial reference on the various reel checks used by Hardy Bros. over the past 100+ years. See here.
Finally, see here for a list of all known Hardy reel makers, whose initials you will find stamped in Hardy reels over the years.
