    Leeda & BFR are counterparts, they should be great reels.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Just picked this up for a few Boo rods I just picked up(Hardy Palakona JJH Triumph 8'9" circa 1951, and a new custom 7' 2/2 4wt from a builder back east). It's a L.W. Holmes, pretty decent Hardy pefect clone. Not much wobble and deffinitely fishable, a bit of red grease should tighten it right up. I did have to do some file work on the pawl to get it to engage the gear but it works like new now. I'll probably clean it up with some solvent and and see how clean I can get it.

    Boy, I wouldn't clean it too much, I think it is weathering nicely. However it looks as if someone had 'The Hated Stickers' on it! God I hate stickers! They block UV & ozone from the finish of the reels allowing everything to weather and develop a patina except the area under Those *** Stickers........

    Not too worry Ard, I too like the natural patina as well. I just wanted to get the grime out of the lines in the rim an inards of the reel, the sticker gunk too. I got it where I want it already with some rubbing alchohol and a old tooth brush. Luckily the reel must have lived a while before the ugly line stickers got put on, only a small sign that one of them was ever there not bad at all. I'm thinking it will be too big/heavy for the 7' but it should be right at home on the Hardy. I'll put up some shots in the rod love thread when it gets here.

    Cool,

    I was just seeing one of them on the sale place recently but not that one I don't think. I have to swear off reels for a while and get some rods to catch up and that is an embarrassing thing to admit.

    That is in great condition! Have you had it a long time or just get hold of it. They are so perfectly smooth,

    Great reel,

    This is a fine late 70's vintage CFO with original fleece pouch in excellent, like unused condition. Note the "T" line guard pillar and the elongated spool release lever.

    Thanks for the compliments Hardy. I've had the reel for a couple of weeks now, just haven't had the time or funds to set it up and use.

    Thanks for the info Seetandsalt! I see you are a cfo expert.
