"This trout fly reel has been hand-built by one of four Hardy master-craftsmen, who together lay claim to 116 years of reel-making experience. The maker's name is commemorated alongside the limited edition number on a stainless steel medallion on the winding plate. Another medallion displays the famous 1896 Hardy Rod-in-Hand trademark. The drum is made from highly polished bar-stock 6262 aluminium with a naval brass, integrally-machined spindle. The side-plates are polished ebonite, the rims are stainless steel, the reel seat is brass nickel, and the pillars, drag selector and check button are finished in polished nickel silver.
