Wtb hardy perfect

Looking for 4 inch or 3 3/4 perfect with line guard with short foot for newer rods. Would prefer the last version with line guard in LHW. I know it's a tall order. Willing to pay fair value. I may have to settle for a new perfect without line guard.

I wasn't aware that any 3 3/4" or 4" models - new or old - were produced with an agate line guard. Ever salmon size model I have seen had the brass line guard if it had one at all.

I was looking for similar reels for a long time. And I didn't want to settle with a new perfect. Eventually I gave up and bought a new perfect. It was not bad. But zero mojo. I really feel they got it wrong with the color. So I sold it and waited again. I recently found a Hardy 3 3/4" and a 4" LHW 1912 check lightly used for the price of the new Perfect. I couldn't be happier. Hand made by Hardy's makers with big gears. And the sound. Oh the sound. It was worth the wait.

Hi Mundle. I have the reel you're looking for. It took me awhile to find it and it's a great reel. Sorry I'm not looking to part with it, but I'm encouraging you in your search. They pop up. Check the auction site and other forums... And don't worry about "mojo". I find that if you fish your gear as the fishing tools they are intended to be it is not an issue. It adds up quickly
Good Luck!

Thanks for the stab man. You worry about what you want and I'll worry about what I want. Beside. I absolutely guarantee I fish much much more than you. I'm basically on the river everyday. So I do use my reels.
And let me tell you something. With modern anodizing. Your reel will still be looking brand new in 50 years.

In my opinion, it's a good thing and a bad thing. As reel will take a thousand years to have the patina we love so much in old reels.

Also, to me MOJO is not just about how old and used your reel is. It's also about the overall look of the reel. And as an example. here two Hardy 4". And they both have about the same usage and age. And cost almost the same. One is easy to find. The other not so much. It's pretty clear to me that the Spitfire has 10 times the mojo.

@Greenbutskunk I was trying to encourage the OP to pursue the reel he's looking for. No idea what your aim is in this thread. No one cares about your POV on patina and mojo. Go back to fishing more than me and putting your faux finishes on your Hardy Taupo.

Again. Thank you for the stab. Without people like you, the internet would be so civil and boring. So today, you won the internet. YAY!!!!!!!!

Maybe consider the Wayne Petrevan 4" platewind complete with 1912 style check. Canadian $$…. top quality and lefthand wind.

Never heard of them. Like it since I'm Canadian. Quick questions are do they scream like the perfects and cost.

Video I heard was similar to a Perfect. They are not cheap and final cost depends on how you outfit them. Per Wayne, the raised pillar deluxe is $1,500 CDN. Options include the following.
Line guard bronze: $75
Line guard nickel silver $125
Brass foot: $50
Turk's head locking nut: $30
Brass winding plate: $75

As far as I know they can scream like a Perfect, or not, as you may so choose. From his web site there is a standard model platewind and a deluxe, on his web site they seem to be quite separate models. The one in the photo that I posted is the deluxe, one price includes all the features n/silver line guide brass foot, turks head tensioner etc. I also seem to remember that his prices include tax. I will try to find out although he can also be contacted directly.
