Hardy Brass Faced Perfect Fly Reel 4 1/4"


A very scarce Hardy Brass Faced Perfect wide drum fly reel, 4 1/4" diameter with rotating German silver line guide embedded in the frame, referred to as the 1903 line guide design with the turned-up 1905 check spring. The winding plate features the "rod-in-hand" logo as well as the straight-line logo. Excellent overall condition. The ivory handle is in fine condition and spins freely. There are matching "4" stamps on each part of the reel. Tight condition mechanically. The pierced brass foot appears full length and unmolested, measuring 3 3/4" in length. Turks head nut over the adjustable spring tensioner. Minor dings throughout with some normal wear to the alloy but no cracks or serious dings are visible. A very fine example of this model.

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.
