Hardy Perfect 3 5/8" Fly Reel w/ Red Agate


For sale here is a pre-WWII Hardy Perfect with red agate line guide. 3 5/8" diameter. Right hand retrieve. The ivorine handle is stiff on its post and needs to be freed up by a competent reel mechanic. The tension regulator works as intended. Nice leaded finish. Smooth brass foot is unmodified. The red agate line guide is crack-free. While the agate bezel insert is somewhat unusual, I cannot state definitively whether this was a custom replacement at some point or whether it was done at the factory. The patina of the bezel and the insert match exactly and the fit seems perfect.

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.
