Sold Out $550.00 US
For sale here is a Hardy Perfect 3 5/8" fly reel in excellent original condition. From the 1924-1926 time frame when they were phasing out the ivorine handle and adding a spare spring and pawl. Winding plate is stamped "Duplicated Mark II". Much of the original leading still exists on the winding plate and spool face. There are no cracks in the original agate line guide. The original ivorine handle is crazed and spins freely. The knurled tensioner works perfectly. Gear teeth and dual pawls are in great shape, very sharp. Reel weighs 8 oz (there is a small amount of backing included). Original and unfiled smooth brass foot measures 2.5". No wobble or end play.
