Hardy Uniqua 3 1/8" fly reel - early


For sale here is a very scarce and early Hardy Uniqua model - 3 1/8" diameter with the early flat caliper spring check. Marked Hardy's Patent "Uniqua" Reel. Ivory handle. Mechanically the reel is still in good condition with a RHW fixed check and some end play like most Uniqua-style reels. The original 3" long smooth brass foot is unblemished. No cracks, chips, or dings. As you can see in photo #5, the stripping pillar does have a substantial groove in it (only 1/4 of the pillar remains in that location!) What makes this reel possibly unique is the brass pins / caged spool configuration that could have been done at the Hardy factory or perhaps an after-market addition. A very nice and rare old Uniqua!

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.
