Elkhorn T3 Mid-Arbor (Pewter) is incredible to me for a 7wt Steelheader.

I don't have a picture, but my all time favorite is the Hardy, LRH. Second is my Farlow "Panton". And there is a fondness for JW Youngs.

I like many reels but the Lightweight series reels from hardy are my favorites. I have sold off many that I had stopped using but my Princess (shown) and my first one, a 1976 Featherweight are always close. Nothing looks the same on a cane rod............ or a graphite for that matter.

FWIW, don't tell anybody, but HarrisSportsmail has Hardy's on sale. And no VAT tax.

Hardyreels, here's a close second to that. Simple as a Hardy and a cool clicker sound too. C Farlow, Grenaby. From the '60's

I'm digging these Ross Evolutions that I bought @ $200/each !
The English-Made Orvis BBS IV's I bought are pretty nice as well. I told my
wife that if we bought the Evo's, I'd sell some of the others reels I bought
recently, hence the ad in the classified forum: can't bury it any deeper than
that !!!
