SKU: VFT11838

Notify me when this product is available:

For sale here is a fine example of a mid to late 1890s Hardy All Brass Perfect. Strapped tension adjuster with turk's head locking nut; open ball race with bronze (brass?) balls – it appears 2 balls are missing. Foot has been slightly trimmed at one end, presumably for ease of use. The reel is in good working order with no significant play; the cast foot is, unusually, intact. This is one of the 15 sizes listed in the 1895 catalogue, so only 14 more to go!

This reel is no longer for sale.
