Ari t Hart Rainbow Reel [SALE PENDING]


A nice Ari t' Hart Rainbow fly reel in the very scarce Opal finish, 3 1/2" diameter and set up for LHW. Excellent lightly used condition with a few mounting marks on the foot, a tiny amount of pitting at the base of the interior of the spool, a mild (and very typical) bit of rust at the base edge of the counterweight, and a portion of the spacer at the base of the handle is missing though does not affect the handle's function. Serial #209 which is etched on the backplate along with the ATH logo and model name. Produced for a brief period from 1993 to 1995, this Ari Hart model is very hard to find especially in the opal finish. Designed to hold a WF10 and 300 yards of 20# backing. The reel comes in a handsome Giorgio Benecchi leather reel case which was clearly made for this specific reel. A fine example of a model that's very difficult to find on the market!
