For sale here is a rare Hardy Uniqua wide drum reel, diameter 3 3/4". RHW (although if you flip the pawl, it works just as well and tight in LHW). MKII check with spare non-engageable. It's in excellent shape, both cosmetically and mechanically. No line grooves. The original fat ebonite handle spins freely as it should. There is no tensioner on this reel but the spring is really strong, but not too much so. Gear teeth and dual pawls are in great shape with very sharp points. Frame has knurled edges. Reel weighs 11 oz. Original ribbed brass reel foot (straight and full-length) measures 3.4". Spool width (inside to inside) is 1.2". No wobble and ZERO end play, which is super rare with these great old Hardy Uniquas. Telephone latch functions as it should. No signs of repair whatsoever on this reel. Hard to find in this condition!
