I am a huge fan of Click and Pawl reels, and having a classic looking reel. Well there’s nothing quite as classic as the Hardy Perfect! I prefer using mono running lines and having a full frame reel like the Hardy Perfect has is crucial. I also like a heavy reel to add ballast to my cast, and Hardy Perfect's are pretty heavy. It also allows me to comfortably choke up on my grip a little bit keeping my casting stroke nice and compact. Hardy Perfect’s look great and sound even better!
