Prewar Hardy Perfect 3 3/8"
Prewar Hardy Perfect 3 3/8" c. 1920s.
Duplicated MkII Model with original brass foot
No modification, no polishing, close to 100 years of natural patina from fishing. Check is tight, no wobble, and inside out in pristine collector's condition. The rim has plenty of enamel. There is no crack on the agate lineguard.
Not quite a spey reel, but I've had it on my 5wt ACR switch rod that I use for trout and half-pounders (120 yards of 20lb dacron, 20lb running line, and 260 grain SGS)
Empty reel weighs a hair shy of 7oz. Great for trout switch or spey.
Price $650 or best offer
I will let the photos speak of the condition.
