He planned to make 50 copies each of 2 3/4" Perfection No. 2; 3” Perfection #1; and 3 3/16” Tobique. Joe made every reel in the same configuration of hard rubber, nickel silver, aluminum, and bronze bearings as the original Vom Hofe reels. The only exception was the oil cap, which had the Saracione name rather than Vom Hofe. I ordered a set in 1993. I talked to Joe recently. He never finished the entire runs of each reel, but he doesn’t remember how many were made of each model. Supposedly, only 8 of the 2 3/4" Perfections were made, and 20 of the 1/0 Tobique. The reels were extremely complicated, and required an inordinate amount of work to complete. They are probably the pinnacle of Joe Saracione’s reel making efforts. This reel is as New in its leather case- it has been out of the case only few times in the last 20 years. [$5000] REDUCED $4250
