Hardy Duchess Reels



Sporting classic design and hand crafted workmanship from England, the Hardy Duchess is a reel any angler would be proud to fish.  The Hardy Duchess 9/10/11 is a 4-inch diameter reel which is perfectly sized for today's 7- to 9-weight Spey rods.  At 7.6 ounces, it is a bit lighter than the Perfect or Bougle' reels.  The Duchess features a click-pawl drag with a substantial range of drag pressure and, of course, the classic "growl" every Hardy reel owner loves to hear when a fish peels off line.
