For sale here is a Dingley-made Perfect made before WWII for English gun maker H. Monk. This 3 inch reel was very well made, nice and tight. It has a single pawl/spring and no ball bearings (a "eunuch" model). It comes with a tension adjustment knob that works properly, gradually increasing the spring tension throughout its adjustment range. The original brass foot is full length and unblemished. Very slight line burns. 

The reel foot measures 2 1/2" and the reel weighs 6.90 oz. A classic and very rarely seen reel made by the master, and very fishable to this day. This reel will look great and balance very well with any of your 4 or 5 weight bamboo rods.
