A beautiful Paul Hermann salmon reel, 3 3/16" in diameter and set up for LHW. This reel is in its original, unused condition. Black anodized side plates with silver rims, spool, crank, pillars, and foot. "P Hermann, Maker" and "180" stamped into the underside next to the foot. I believe that Dr. Hermann made around 200 of these reels in his lifetime and the quality of his work needs no introduction. Boasting a Bogdan-style drag, Dr. Hermann made these reels by hand, exhibiting a high degree of craftsmanship. The drag will stop any salmon you are lucky enough to catch and boasts a 1.9 : 1 retrieve. It weighs 11.4 ounces on my scale. It also comes in an original blue fleece bag with a red drawstring. Gorgeous reel.
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.
