Hardy Perfect Wide Spool Fly Reel 3" with Wartime Finish


An ultra rare wartime-era Hardy Perfect wide spool reel with the black paint finish. 3" diameter and designed for RHW. Stamped "Duplicated Mark II Check" though only a single is to be found inside. I've seen a small number of these wartime reels over the years and this one has about the best finish I've come across with very minimal loss of paint, a few specks and one small patch on the rim. Smooth brass foot, freely turning handle, and a well-functioning tension regulator. Nice and tight mechanically. Jimmy Smith's initials appear on the winding plate. A very nice example of an ultra-rare Hardy that belongs in someone's collection.

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.
