FS: Original Hardy Taupo with Metal Line Guard

For Sale: An original Hardy Taupo reel with metal line guard. This is an original Taupo from the 1950s/60s, not one of the recent reproductions.
- Reel is 3 7/8" in diameter with 1" spool width. Will easily handle a 9 wt. single handed line. I find it ideal for a 6/7 weight double handed rod.
- Excellent plus condition, showing very little use. Tight with no spool wobble. Handle turns freely, tension adjustment works perfectly. Very minor loss of enamel finish around edges of frame. No chips, dings, line grooves, or other issues.
- Alloy foot is straight and unaltered. Fits modern reel seats.
- Comes with correct, original Hardy selvyt bag. No rips or tears, minor stains, overall excellent condition.
Original Taupos are extremely hard to find, and very few were made with the metal line guard. In this condition, this is a rare and highly collectible reel. It is certainly the nicest example of an original Taupo that I have ever seen. $1275 shipped and insured within CONUS. No trades please, as the only reason I'm selling is to raise cash for another purchase. PM or email at [email protected] if interested. Thanks.
