Marquis Salmon: Since Hardy stopped making the original Marquis, they were inundated with requests for its reinstatement. The new Marquis comes in 3 sizes built to the original designs. All the new reels are interchangable with the original spools so that over the years if a frame is dropped and broken, buckled or cracked, you can still swap the spools out on a new reel. The new design is manufactured from high-grade aluminum with a polished silver rim making it one of the best Marquis ever created. The new reels also feature a redisigned internal cam to the give the reel an increased range to the well known click-check system. 3 sizes to fit every salmon fishing situation.

Perfect: This reel needs no introduction, perhaps the most famous reel ever made by Hardy. The Perfect is a timeless design utilizing the most modern technology available and made once again in Alnwich, England. The high quality , agate line guard , the dovetail reel seat, the durable gunmetal grey anodized finish with the contrasting ivory colored handle make it one of the most well known reels. The Perfect utilizes 15 stainless steel ball bearings to give the reel one of the smoothest winding reels ever made. All models available in LH or RH. 3 sizes to fit most trout fishing conditions. This reel has been selected as one of the great new product introductions ( since production was stopped ) and is available on a limited basis. When ordering this, there may be a longer than expected wait since much of the construction of this reel requires a great of hand work to tune the reel to perfection.

St.George: At last! The St. George is finally available! The original St. George Reels were produced in Alnwick from 1911 to 1983 and are among the finest fishing reels ever made. Named after St. George, the patron Saint of England, the first model was a 3 3/4" trout reel which was quite light for the time. The original was fitted with a a circular agate line guard and a compenstating check. After WWII more models were added including the Juinor at 2 1/2". For the collector the original St. George is highly sought after and one in good shape is today, quite rare. The new models are made in the Hardy factory in Alnwick and come in two sizes and two colors.  The St George Junior is 2 9/16" and the St. George 3" come in either a black or spitfire (silver) annodization.  They come in either right of left hand retrieve. 

 Price: Junior: $700, Standard: $750

Colors: Black and Spitfire ( Silver Annodized)

Junior will fit a 2-3 -4 weight rod. Standard will fit 3-4-5 rod.

 

Swift MkII: When this reel was created it was immediately adopted by many tournment anglers because of its reliability and sensitivity of its clutch. In creating the new MkII, Hardy re-engineered the original and made it perform better. Made with a barrel polished finish, lightweight, yet strong. Legendary drag system. Covers a wide range of sizes from size 3 to10. ( Note: On some computer screens the image might appear to have a blue finish, actual color is dark gray. ) This is easily one of the smoothest reels ever made. It has tight spools that won't wobble and it is a joy to cast and hold. YOU WILL LOVE THIS REEL!!

Uniqua: Hardy technology and experience have combined to produce the new 2010 Uniqua, a reel of exceptional lightness and strength. The offset drag system is sensitive, reliable and quickly adjustable. The reel can be easily changed from left to right hand wind and the deep spools take a great deal of backing in even the smaller sizes. The Uniqua is cageless in its smaller sizes so these can be palmed when the fish is running. On the larger reels, we have added a cage for the extra strength you need for big fish. These bigger reels have been designed to take modern longer bellied lines along with a couple of hundred yards of backing. The reels are designed to marry perfectly with the Uniqua rods and produce a complete rod/reel combination for every angling challenge.These reels are ideal for small trout rods, the new Czech nymph style long rods, saltwater applications and spey rods.
