I have an old Russell that I cannot get the screws out of to tune up. Now they're stripped. Dunno what I should do :/

I bought this as NOS the other day. It was only $19, so I figured I was pretty safe.

I can't find much about it anywhere. The only printing anywhere on it is the LH/RH instructions and 'Pat. App. for Made in U.S.A.' on the reel seat.

Does anyone have any more info on this reel?

I couldn't help myself. Eventually, there had to be a Hardy added to the collection...Oh, this affliction!

It's the Hardy St. George Junior. This reel is the ideal size for a 1 or 2 weight. I found a deal online that I couldn't pass up.

Thanks, Jaybo. I found it new for less than 1/2 price. It's a nice little reel at 2 1/2 inches in diameter. I love the sound it makes, and I can't wait to put it to use.
