Edward Vom Hofe Model 360 Perfection Size 3 Fly Reel


For sale here is an Edward Vom Hofe Model 360 Perfection fly reel (size 3) in excellent overall condition. 2 1/2" diameter with 7/8" wide spool. This reel carries the '83 patent date on the oil cap. German silver reel foot stamped "360 #3" with no serial number. German silver / hard rubber construction. German silver spool. The reel has an adjustable drag and click and the five detent arrowhead pointer drag feature with red dot indicators.Mechanically the reel remains in excellent condition with a great drag and smooth-running operation. The reel has been professionally cleaned and polished. There are two very tiny cracks in the hard rubber on the headplate, one by the pillar screw on the left, and the other at the three o' clock position. On the tailplate (above and to the right of the check screws), there is a very small piece of the ebonite that had chipped off but is now filled back in. A very well done and minor repair. Comes with an Edward Vom Hofe leather case missing its strap. A superb example of one of the finest trout reels in history!
