This limited edition reel has been produced to commemorate the life of the late James Leighton Hardy, for whom the JLH reel was named.

The JLH reel was introduced in 1991, the year before Jim retired and was a piece of classic design that reflected the exacting standards of its namesake. The original range comprised six reels, ranging from a diminutive 2⅞" trout model to a mighty 4" salmon reel and it was one of the first reels that Hardy manufactured from bar-stock alloy, which made it possible to build light, but incredibly strong components which were perfectly matched to carbon fibre rods. The 1991 reel was the natural successor to the Lightweight range, built since 1936, and it brought the concept up-to-date with an exposed rim, optional left or right hand wind, and a reversible nickel-silver line guard. The range was so popular that it was updated several times, the most significant modifications being the introduction of a powerful disc drag in 2000 and a large arbour range in 2003.

Reviews for this product
Excellent product,competitive price,speedy delivery.
Bought this limited edition Hardy reel which I am really pleased with. The price was lower than anyone else around and the service and delivery was top notch. The reel itself is an item of beauty,being manufactured and finished to a high standard. I wonder whether I will ever fish with it or will it become a collectable ornament? Chances are it will get a line on it at some point and at least one day's fishing out of it. No matter how many reels I have purchased over the years I can honestly say that it takes a lot to beat a Hardy reel. Review by Hamish (Created 18/12/2014)
