Cosmetically it has the classic three badge design, very much like original, and it also features the unique s-shaped handle. It is constructed using 6061 aluminum which is anodised and hand finished by Hardy's highy skilled and experienced fly reel engineers. Regarding construction, what you get with a Hardy Fly Reel is a superior product that goes through a wide range of high precision engineering processes and hand finishing. All parts are hand-made in Alnwick by engineers with over 30 years experience. Therefore each reel is the culmination of many hours testing, re-testing, re-designing and meticulous quality control.
Each reel starts off life as two pieces of 6061 barstock aluminium, one piece for the spool and the other for the frame. Firstly, the block undergoes series of machine lathe processes where it gets shaped with rough cut tools to achieve its recognisable fly reel features. Next, this shape is finished using a fine lathe to form the face, rim, and edges to resemble the design of the particular fly reel in production. Finally, it then goes through a diamond cut lathe where the reel piece is polished. However, during finishing, the reel is still far from complete, so it has to be hand polished using emery paper to ensure a smooth finish. Once this process is complete successfully, the metal is then anodised to protect the aluminium from corrosion.
