Hardy Perfect Special Fly Reel 3 1/4"


A very scarce Hardy Special Perfect fly reel, 3 1/4" diameter and set up for the typical RHW. Early 1920's reel, these models were made between 1905 and 1939, and characterized by the raised housing for the check and winding plate (which was often unleaded after the very earliest models). This one is in fine condition overall with the loss of finish and a few very small line burns in one pillar being the principal signs of use. The reel is devoid of any major issues and the spool is nice and tight with no wobble. It sports a fine pleasing click. Erinoid handle and a smooth brass foot. The reel comes in a non-original leather case. These Perfect Specials show up very rarely indeed!
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.
