  • Beautiful classic fly reels, the latest revision in over a century of the Perfect. This model features a wide spool for better capacity, a time proven check system, and that classic Perfect sound. Ever since Forster Hardy was first granted a full patent for the Perfect reel design in 1889, Hardy engineers, developers and consultants have been constantly striving for ways to improve on perfection, tweaking and adjusting to bring you what we believe are the best reels in their class to date. After all, if they offered anything less, it would not be a Perfect.
