An unused Hardy Marquis Salmon No 2 Reel went for £201 on ebay recently. Seems like crazy money to me.
I bought a secondhand Marqis No2, in A1 condition with a spare spool and Aircel Green DT10 line, for £85 at my local tackle dealer!
These reels seem to be very popular in the USA at the moment. They are nice reels, but is there a particular reason why the yanks like them so much. The Hardy name/sense of tradition perhaps? Srely noy the rather annoying click!
