    Hardy Featherweight Casa ENGLAND NR

    I am looking at a used Hardy Featherweight Reel on eBay and the title says the reel is "with Casa ENGLAND NR". Does anyone have any idea what that means?

    Pat, I can put you in contact with George Casa, one of Shannon's owners. He likely knows what that means. Just call or email me and I'll send you his phone info.

    The "Casa" is just a coincidence, BTW

    No reserve means he is not looking to sell it for a specific amount. The bidding Starts at 99 cents and whoever is too bidder when it ends wins. If there is a reserve ( minimum amount he wants for the reel like 200 bucks) the bids have to exceed that number before it will be sold. If it doesn't the seller reserves the right not to sell the item

    You think "Casa" just means "home" as in England is where it was made? Where else would it be made? That would make sense that the poster is trying to be cute. I agree that the NR is no reserve. Highest bidder takes it even if it goes for 50 cents.

    Actually just looked at the listing. Casa was supposed to be case. Spelling error

    Re: Hardy Featherweight Casa ENGLAND NR

    I think we may have most of it solved. The reel was definitely made in England, and the NR (no reserve) is obvious now that it has been pointed out. I am still unclear then why the seller said "Case England". I just wanted to make sure that it was a Hardy Featherweight with no extra bells and whistles.

    I will probably place a bid and see what happens - this is a reel that I want so I can then need one of the newer graphite or glass 6' rods, or even one of the older 6' cane rods, to match it.

    It's not CASA its Case. He spelled it wrong in his listing.

    We're making some assumptions here, and could be wrong, but they make some sense.
    If we assume that he misspelled "Case", lets go ahead an assume his punctuation is less than perfect, and supply some commas.

    • Hardy Featherweight with Case, ENGLAND, NR


    Not a complete sentence, but as a brief headline, it describes the product, the country of origin, and sale criteria.

    I get it, and no I have not contacted the seller. The bids are going up quickly and there are 4 days to go.
