Hardy Bougle MK V 3″ Lightweight Centenary Limited Edition reel No 000

I keep saying it, just when you think you’ve seen it all, up pops this one in another collection we bought this week.

A unique, one-off reel, this factory gold finish would not normally have been offered for sale, being part of the Hardy Archives.

This number 000 would have been from the first production batch, they always used to keep 000 for their Archives. However, the MD at the time made a decision to sell this to generate cash, so this reel was sold. It has significant importance for a Hardy collector, and there is not another in the world.

The reel is 3″ diameter across raised pillars, with wood effect handle and rim tension regulator, super smooth check clicker and correct original foot,

The reel comes with a black velvet drawstring bag, and special polished wood fitted box with inset brass Hardy plate to the lid and outer card box

This has to be the ultimate contemporary Hardly collectible reel for now and future investment. In stock at the time of writing, click here to buy.
