Last year, I got what I thought was a screaming deal on SA System 11 reel (Made by Hardy in the late 70s) from fleabay. Turns out, it was the first version of the reel, with a well worn out plastic ring and pawl drag that had long ago given up the click. I sat on the reel for over a year before reaching out to Bill to see if there was anything he could do. Of course, he had just what this reel needed. After a short couple of weeks, I found a package on my doorstep, and in it, a reel brought back to life with a proper double pawl drag! I've got a rod and line ready for the reel, and I can't wait to hear it sing again this upcoming season. Thank you Bill for saving this reel from a life on a shelf.
