It allowed a rapid retrieve of the line, especially useful when a fish was running towards the angler. The first models had a gear housing placed up next to the reel seat, but this version with the gear housing placed at the lower end was introduced in 1934. A larger salmon size of 3 3/4” was introduced in 1930. According to the Hardy Production Book, about 490 Multipliers were made, with the 3 3/8” size accounting for about 349 units. Since this low gear model was introduced in 1934, it was one of 109 made between 1934 and 1939. The reel maker’s initials “D.W” stood for Denys Ward, who made reels from 1926 to 1939. This reel has a perfect smoky grey agate line guard. The original gunmetal finish is worn to a beautiful smooth patina. Excellent mechanical condition. A fine Hardy collectible. Sheepskin zip case. Very Good. $1750. SOLD
