teter ... your bevy of Hardy Perfects, in conjunction with the occasional and preceding Hardy Perfect, has finally reconciled this thread to its title ... as Mike's likes to say:

// Ok not that old, from 2002, but nice I think and as you wished in a bigger size. 250 made in each size( 125 left hand wind and 125 in Right Hand Wind ).The Wide Spool Salmon Perfects are all made with an individual number and the Hardy Reel makers initials stamped inside. HGH stands for Hardy reel maker HG Handyside. The reels were made to celebrate the 90 years anniversery of the Hardy 1912 check. Enjoy ! Ps: These reels are not replicas except for the use of the 1912 check. In use on Hardy Perfects between 1912 and 1917/18.
