A nice Hardy Salmon Perfect fly reel, 4 1/4” in diameter. RHW. This reel has a ribbed brass foot that is 3 5/8” long with no file marks. It has Hardy’s patented revolving nickel silver line guide and the check regulator which works as it should. This circa 1955 reel is fitted with the stronger springs and larger pawls seen on Hardy’s larger salmon Perfects. There is no spool wobble, and there are no cracks nor line burns in the frame. With about 90% of its original enameling intact, this reel will balance well with longer double handed salmon rods.
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.
