Default Re: Info on a Hardy reel?

Welcome to the forum,

I have no experience with the reel you ask about but............. The eBay link goes to a #7/8 size, are the #1 reels designed the same but with a clicker drag? They look very much like a copy on the old CFO reels that Hardy built for orvis through the years.

Depending on the price being ask I would think they would make a fine reel for a 4 weight rod. Another option would be an old Battenkill in the 3/4 size. There have been some gems sold on auction lately, not a single scratch.

Just looked at that price!

PASS, you can get a vintage CFO in mint shape for that money.

Wannafish got that right!
