For Sale: Leaded Hardy 3 ½” Wide Drum with Line Guide. This reel is in top condition, and ready to fish with no issues.
- Foot has been replaced by Bill Archuleta, so reel can be used on modern reel seats (This is a $265 service; receipt available).
- Original foot is in perfect condition, included in sale, and easily re-installed (Photo 4 was taken before foot was replaced).
- Reel is super tight, with no spool wobble.
- Line guide has no burns or grooves and turns freely.
- Handle turns freely. Tension adjustment works perfectly.
- Significant amount of original leading still remaining. A couple of minor dings on the rims, but nothing serious.
- Only flaw is a small set of initials on the winding plate (see Photo 1, directly opposite handle).
This is a very difficult reel to find, particularly in this condition and with a replacement foot already in place. I find it ideal on my 13’ – 7 weight double handed rod. $975 shipped and insured within CONUS using check, money order, or Paypal. PM or email at [email protected]
if interested. Thanks.
