For sale here is a very nice 3 1/8" Hardy Perfect fly reel with 1906 check. The majority of original leading remains. The caliper spring is nice and strong and the bridged tensioner works fine. Gear teeth remain sharp. Ivory handle spins freely and is in great shape. The original smooth brass foot is full length and has a slight kink but fits reel seats just fine. No cracks whatsoever, just usual fishing wear. No spool wobble or end play. Matching stamps throughout. A very tight reel mechanically. There are some very minor silk line burns in the usual location. There are also a couple of line burns in the pillar above the one where the line usually rests. Again, nothing serious as far as integrity of the reel goes.
A super nice Hardy Perfect trout reel to this day. Don't let it get away!
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.
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.
