    RL Winston perfect reel

    I recently acquired an RL Winton 3 3/8 Perfect reel. It is in velvet bag in original box. If it was ever used, I can't tell.
    Any idea of the value of this reel? Hard to find info on it.
    Thanks, Bryan

    Re: RL Winston perfect reel

    I just googled it and tons and tons of info comes up on it. It's a Hardy reel made for Winston. Looks like it goes for $500 - $550

    Re: RL Winston perfect reel

    UPS lost my reel, said it was delivered yesterday at 2:16....but, it wasn't
    Winston said they will send another one and take it up with UPS..no company is this awesome....
    I wonder who just got a brand new, Winston Perfect reel????

    Re: RL Winston perfect reel

    I have one of those as well....It needs a washer, that I lost somehow when I was lubricating it, contacted Hardy twice and never heard back...what a bag of dick's..it is a great reel and tons of fun to fish with...I fish it on my Winston 5wt...all the colors match and the weight is "perfect" if I can get that washer back!!!!

    AND, I still think your fish were fake....

    have you considered using a cheerio?

    seriously tho, if you know where the washer fits it shouldn't be too hard to replace/machine one. sounds like a fun project to me.

    Machine something, "Jim, I'm a chef, not a fabricator damnit".....
    I e-mailed Hardy and they responded this time, I'm on my way to getting a new washer...

    Don't listen to any of these guys. The reel isn't worth a dime. Send it over to me and I'll properly dispose of it for you.
