FS: Vintage Hardy Zenith, Near New

For Sale: A vintage Hardy Zenith, near new condition in the box, with the red/cream Hardy case. This is the desireable heavy 2 screw line guard version with the "British Regd" logo. Just a very few pinhead size marks here/there if you look closely, and slight tarnish on the nickel silver lineguard; the reel is in exceptional shape. Just in the box for a long time. A great choice for your light trout speys or switch rod. Set up RHW, but of course easily reversed to LHW. Just switch the dual pawl an reverse the lineguard. MO or PayPal. $250.00 shipped via US Priority Mail. Send a PM if interested, or email to: [email protected] (remove the XXX) *SOLD*

Beauty......they don't come any cleaner. They will take a WF 9 and 240 yds of backing , so loads of room.

If I hadn't just bought one I would be all over this.

Silly question but can you "palm" these reels? If not, is the drag fairly adjustable?

No...they are a cage type frame.

The drag on them is pretty decent if you turn in both pawls...that's what I used to do with the Dean River fish and my St John....makes a reel just scream

One way to add loads of drag is just pinch the inside edge of the spool with your thumb and your index finger against the frame...kinda like a disc brake set up and rotor on your car. Works like a charm
