    Default SA/Hardy #9 Trout Spey !

    Here we have a SA/Hardy #9 with a spare spool. The reel has some slight rim rash and light scuffs on the palming rim but otherwise clean. IMO this makes an excellent trout spey reel and it balances perfectly on the 4116 & 5116. I find it a tad heavy for the 3110 but I can overlook that for it's other merits. The reel has the dual pawl and not the hoop design discussed in another post. Full cage you no longer need to be concerned if you fish OPST Laser.

    The picture is the actual reel you will recieve with the spare spool and cases. The price is $275 plus shipping and insurance (est. $13.00)

    Bumping this up and just a comment for those giving these a thought. I looked them up and while what few were sold on the auction site went for a tad less , they didn't compare condition wise. These reels have seen limited use if any at all and a great match for the #4 trout spey. I think they would be a good fit with a #7 SH line too , particularly a long head or Airflo lines (Streamer MAX?) which them to take up a lot of space.

    Adding backing will build the hub to 2 1/4" dia. and with a Rio running line weights in at 7.6 oz
    I have attached a 275 grain and 305 grain skagit with room to spare.

    I now only have 1 of these left and zero spare spools. The remaining reel is in good condition but not as nice as the ones above. There is some rim rash but no major nicks or dings. The palming rim is not as shiny. I am going to discount this remaining reel to $165.00 plus actual shipping and insurance. Although the remaining reel is not on par with the ones already sold, it smokes the ones I compared it to on the auction site.
