For sale here is a Hardy Perfect with a MKII check - 3 3/8" diameter. This reel is from the mid 1920s and has a flawless ceramic line guide, which is not original to a reel of this vintage. The replacement was well done and looks very nice. Very tight reel mechanically. Smooth brass foot has been filed very slightly on one end. Ivorine handle spins freely. Strap over tensioner works perfectly. Reel foot is 2.5" long and the reel weighs 8.4 oz fully loaded with line and backing.
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.
