FS: Leaded Hardy 3 1/2" Wide Drum with Line Guide

For Sale: Leaded Hardy 3 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- Foot has been replaced by Bill Archuleta, so reel can be used on modern reel seats (This is a $265 service; receipt available).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.

Additional Information

Here's a bit more information in response to several questions I've been asked:
- Weight: The reel weighs 11.65 ounces
- Capacity: I've been using it with an Airflo Compact Skagit 510, Airflo Ridge 20# running line, and 150 yards 20# Micron backing.
- Repairs: Other than the replacement foot there have been no other repairs I'm aware of.

One time price reduction plus more

One time price reduction to $925 with same terms and conditions. In addition I will include this selvyt bag. It is the correct size for this reel, and while it is in only fair/good condition (replacement drawstrings, areas of heavy wear) it is clean, perfectly functional and has a nice full rod in hand logo.

Last Chance

I'll go $900 if there are no fees involved. Otherwise it's going back into my fishing bag for another year.
