Hi everyone....I am the fellow who is actually selling all the items that Norseman posted above....I will copy/paste his post in here and anyone can contact me directly...sorry I took so long getting to this...kinda swamped in my "Other" life. A lot of the stuff is gone but there are still a bunch of great deals on some fine gear. Tight lines.
Please rely on my updates so the Norseman doesn't have to duplicate everything that I do here.

For any of you who are interested in more "Collectible" Hardy reels I also have an LHR Lightweight "2 screw" model and a "2 screw" Princess which has 2 extra spools........Both are in excellent condition. Reels and spools are empty...no lines included. I had not intended, initially, to sell these but I know I will not be using them and they deserve a good home. I am asking $300 each and $50 for each extra spool. I will sell the spools separately but will not sell the Princess unless the spools go with it or before it.
