3 1/8" perfect, appears to be clean and in good overall condition with the agate showing no cracks. Other than telling you they run exceptionally smoothly due the the ball bearing system I don't know what I could say. They do tend to be a tad heavy and are often preferred on cane rods to counter the tip weight of the bamboo.

Looking at the foot, the linear script, and the case I would guess a early to mid 1970's - 1980 reel. Value is whatever the market will pay or bid. A reel such as this can sell as high as 450 and up if it were in mint condition with its original papers. I have seen them go as low as 285 but often higher it is truly a matter of who is looking and what they will pay at any given time. If the reel were left hand winding instead of right then that opens a new set of perspective buyers and can raise the stakes a bit.

Thanks for the info, It was given to me from my Dad which I will never depart with. Just trying to figure out which reel I want to give my son.
The Hardy or the CFO. I'm keeping the Galvan and Lamson III.

You're Welcome,

Personally I would keep the Hardy & the Orvis but that's just me.

Well, you made up my mind Hardyreels. I'll keep all four and buy him a new one for his 19th Bithrday. He just started fly fishing this summer on a 8 foot 5wt Graphite Browning. Any ideas on which reel he can grow on? We usually fish trout on the Boise River.

Unless you want to surprise him with the reel I would ask. There are so many reels available on todays market I would have no idea where to start.
