A Hardy HBX AW

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Property -

All-new de­sign. Made in Eng­land.

This im­mensely strong new sal­mon reel has been de­signed and built in Northum­ber­land – join­ing Hardy’s much-loved sta­ble of clas­sic reels that are al­ready hand-made in its Al­nwick work­shop. The HBX is thor­oughly mod­ern, how­ever, with in­dus­trial looks and a pow­er­ful sealed disc drag. It clicks in both di­rec­tions. We’ve called it a sal­mon reel but it is salt­wa­ter proof (AW stands for all wa­ter) and will stop tar­pon in their tracks. There’s am­ple ca­pac­ity for a chunky sk­agit line, tip and miles of back­ing. Most im­pres­sive is the build qual­ity. Frame and spool are rock solid. This is a reel that can with­stand the knocks and scrapes of fish­ing on high­land rivers. It gives you con­fi­dence. Our win­ner can choose from three sizes: 7/8, 9/10 and 10/11.
