Hardy Bros. – Perfect Spitfire 2 7/8"

  • For your consideration is a limited edition Hardy Perfect Spitfire in right-hand retrieve. This is a 2 7/8" diameter reel weighing 5.35 ounces. At the beginning of the new millennium, Hardy produced a few models of limited edition reels before production was moved out of England. Originally produced in the first decades of the previous century, only 250 of these modern Spitfires were released. This is number 186. Stamped JWS, corresponding to John Shile. The interior is made of marine brass and stainless steel. The exterior features an unblemished agate, rim tension screw, and alloy ribbed foot.
