This Hijack has ended, we can now return to topic
No worries. I'm hanging onto it for its sentimental value, not for investment. It was my dad's and it has always been paired with the Battenkill rod. (I wonder who can service the felt caliper brake at a reasonable cost, though. Eventually that felt pad will need to be replaced. Don't know whether the new Hardy USA organization is set up to do that.)
