Yeh good call , the only problem is fishing shops just opened up here .... and ques are a mile long to get inBasically a very nice reel light good design etc, at first one or two had problems with the drag not being set correctly, but not heard of one for a while.
Id advise you to try the reel first in a shop and buying that particular reel rather than online.
I’ll be having a look at themI have one and it’s absolutely fine. I think though that Danielsson reels have the edge ( I have several), and significantly less money since you’re buying them from the manufacturer and don’t have the big retail mark-up. Also if you’re going to do any French / tight line nymphing a caged reel is preferable and Vosseler make a fine version again at a good price direct from the factory.
But not trying to put you off the Hardy - I use mine often and the drag setting is fine.
