I have Hardy Marquis No 1 and No 2 salmon reels.

Any views out there on these, please? Modern classic, or junk that disgraced the name of every Hardy reel that went before them? All views welcome.

I own three of the Salmon #2 reels and continue to keep my eyes open for the right #3. I don't own any Perfects and don't know that I ever will. The Marquis still has an awfully nice rattle to it, if you ask me.

I think that's fair comment sva01.

I know someone who has a Perfect that was never used - it's still boxed, in fact. I like the reels I have - and wouldn't part with them - but the quality of materials in the Perfect seem of a different order, and it has a really solid, smooth (and heavy) feel to it. While the quality of workmanship would probably be proven only with use and the passage of time, I suspect that it's commensurate with the materials.

Either way, like you, it looks like I won't be the proud owner of a Perfect anytime soon.

Curreel.
