Wow... I miss this place. Not much two handing to be done in Texas... So here we go...
This is an Ari Hart Mach III reel that has a special order engraving for a European Fly Fishing Company. This is NOT one of the Redington production models. It is earlier and better than those, frankly, a real Dutch Reel. I used it on my big Meiser switch rod when I lived in Oregon - it held an Airflo Delta 7/8 and about 50-75 yds of backing well. No, you can't have the rod, too.
In doing some research, you just can't find these real Ari Hart's/Dutch Reels any more. I found one guy in Europe selling the smaller II model of these for 325 Euro (~$405 at the current rate.) This one is a great design, bulletproof drag, too. I'm asking $350 shipped in the US, add $20 shipped outside the US. Paypal preferred, email me for any questions: piscator at earthlink dot net.
The only defect is a mark on the bottom, see it in the pictures. Hey, at least that way you will actually use it and not be afraid to get the "first ding." It comes in the original case.
Here are pictures... lots of them!
