perfect 3 5/8 wide spool

Post by Torridge Cane » Fri Jan 11, 2019 7:20 pm

l have just picked up a hardy perfect 3 5/8"
nothing unusual about that you all cry ,works fine etc , etc ,
the mystery is , it came with a spare spool , thing is the spare is too wide !!! fits in the frame winds on 2 turns that all
this reel is 50's - 60's ,
my question is.....
Did Hardy make a 3 5/8" Taupo type reel , l can only find 3 7/8" Taupo ,or something else
would be nice to know .
l have gone back to the chap it came from , he can't help .
must be someone who knows out there

If it fits the frame and turns it might be deformed?

According to Turner's guide:- Perfect Taupo - 1958-64 - 3 7/8th".

Perfect narrow drum 1946-66 and 1978-> - sizes 3 1/8th - 3 3/8th - 3 5/8th & 3 7/8th.

As the reels were all cast, then finished individually by the reel maker, I suspect the spare spool was not made to fit your reel and is a later addition?
