i'm looking for a Hardy Perfect for my Sharpes 12 ft salmon rod.   It would need to be able to handle a 8/9 weight spey line.   I would like one that has some wear, since it's for fishing it has no need to be perfect.  Ideally it will have a Agate line guide as well.  If you have one that's not a silly price please PM me.

Barry

Not sure what a Dingle is, but I'll google it.  Yes, around 4inches to take a 8 or 9 weight line.

Dingle is a reel maker in UK use to work for hardy. Then made his own company all the reels are modeled by the hardy reels. Just bit cheaper cause it not a hardy. But same difference lol unless your after the original check

Did the google thing and after a couple of tries it worked out that you should type in "Dingley Fly Reels" and you will see all you need to know.

Thanks, I finally figured that out, but alas none for sale that I could find that looked half decent.  I guess I will have to go with an  Abel.

Good luck on the Abel hunt. They are a good reel and from my experience one will last a lifetime.

What I meant to say is that I already have a couple of Abel's, one of which will take a 8 weight line.  It will do until I find the right spey reel.  

I'm a Brit, so a Hardy would balance the rod just right.

Understood...and I just love the Hardy Perfect. I have a 2 7/8" trout reel manufactured the year I was born (1948) and so it has a special place in my heart!! Have other sizes as well, but no big salmon types. Just may have to do something about that one of these days.
