Hardy Perfect Fly Reel 4"

1873


A Hardy Perfect wide drum fly reel, 4" diameter and set up for the typical RHW. Duplicated MKII check. Excellent overall condition, with the only drawbacks being the finish that has been mostly removed from the winding plate. The reel is great otherwise, with no major defects and is nice and tight mechanically. The ebonite handle spins freely and the click is nice and smooth. There is a tiny bit of residue to the interior of the spool which a simple cleaning should take care of nicely. The ribbed brass foot is very short at approximately 2 1/2" and is shaped to a "canoe" profile and I suspect this was not the factory original and was added later. The reel packs into an excellent Hardy leather block case with the initials "W.L.L." stamped into the top.
Shipping Information
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Other Terms
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
