Hardy Princess Multiplier set up RHW
Hardy Princess Multiplier set up RHW but easily converted. This is a great size for a medium - large trout reel, plenty of capacity for #5-6 lines with adequate backing. These old mulitipliers are getting tougher to find and this one is in wonderful condition; the only drawback on this one is that the original owner lightly scratched his initials into the side plate (W.V. #3). I always thought I would hate fishing multiplier reels, but then my friend Chris Vance gave me a CFO III multiplier and I was pleasantly surprised how nicely it handled line. They do bring line in faster when a fish runs right at you! This reel is mechanically perfect and I had a magical day on a hike-in lake for large westslope cutthroats using this reel last summer. From my personal collection.
