I'm not sure whats going on with STH, but Cortland has imported any Argentina made rules in a few years.

All of the Steel and brass parts of the current Hardys are made in the UK, the Aluminum machining and assembly is done in S. Korea.
Fascinating, isn't it? - that machining some parts of the reel on one side of the world, then shipping them to the far side of the world to be assembled is profitable. I haven't heard a back thing about the "new" Hardys, though.

Does anyone know if the new lightweight spools fit the old English made frames?

Yeah they fit them no problem. The Heritage remakes are incredible too. I've got a buddy that has a 1930's St George, and the new repro spool fits it!

I'd also recommend the Ross Colorado. Been using mine for the last 15+ years with my Sage 590-3 LL.

I definitely like the look of the Redington Drift and it is a bargain at under $100.

Looks like these are discontinued?

LL Bean has a new model, the "Pocket Water", for only $79. I haven't used it but it looks classic. Comes in only one size for line weights 3-5.

Yep, regarding the Ross Colorado, you'll have to try to find one in good condition. I've seen them on eBay before, just need to be selective when searching.

My vote is for the Cortland Retro. I got one on my 2wt and it seems well made and light. Not a loud clicker either.

Ended up winning an English made Hardy Flyweight on Ebay at a very reasonable price considering what people are paying for them now. The reel looked essentially brand new, but someone had engraved a few letters and numbers on the reel shoe so I suppose the collecting crowd wasn't interested.

May have to get a Cortland Retro at some point, too. Thanks for all the advice everyone.
