The Hardy® Perfect® Wide Spool Fly Reel began its reign as the Hardy Perfect, first patented in England in 1889. More than 125 years later, it's still considered the best reel in its class in many quarters. On traditional style and craftsmanship alone, this reel remains an icon in the fly fishing realm—but performance and handling are the real reasons anglers refuse to part with their Perfect Fly Reels. Of course, the designs have been tweaked over the years, with deep-anodized bar stock aluminum construction, the addition of a 1-pc. naval brass spindle, stainless steel ball bearings and check system, easy left- to right-handed retrieve changes, and a widening of the spool to accommodate more backing. But overall, it's still the same easy-casting, sweet-sounding Hardy Perfect with the distinctive satin dark gunmetal finish and classic ivorine handle. On the water or on display, what could be more impressive? Includes soft leather, sheepskin-lined carry pouch.
