An updated Hardy Perfect that does not sacrifice the time honored hundred forty year history of one the finest fly reels ever made. The new Perfect features a wider 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, our 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 we offered anything less, it would not be a Perfect.
