Hi Levi

It has solid pawl, not wobble, fantastic reel... I just have too many reels and feel bad I did not use them all...

I will upload more photos tonight.

The Zenith is an awesome reel in Hardy's lightweight series. Very skookum reel with loads of capacity. I use mine of a TFO Deer Creek 5/6 with a Fall Favorite and there is 150 yards of backing which includes 100' of running line. Someone is going to get themselves a beauty, an uncommon reel to find, especially with the two screw line guard.

Mark, very nice reel Agree with Norseman, the two screw guard is a nice feature to have. Pic with river Striper is fantastic.. love the blue tinge. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Norseman, Brian,

I appreciate the notes.
I probably will regret after selling this reel... but I also felt guilty that not spend enough time on the rivers with her...

I know I regretted selling my first one, so when the next super clean up came up I jumped on it....and still have it along with a NOS spool in the original orange box with green packing paper.

How is the Young still for sale? Such a sweet reel. Someone jump on this before I do something rash! I'd like a look at the checkwork too, if you can Mark.
