A Hardy HBX AW
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.
