Hardy Swift MKII 1000 Reel for 9 or 10 Weights:
When it was launched, the Swift was instantly adopted by many professional fly anglers, like internationals Stuart Crofts and Dave Parker, because of the complete reliability and the sensitivity of its clutch. In tight situations, the performance of the Swift is never in doubt - a great relief when every single fish counts. In creating the Mark II Hardy took the original Swift, re-designed and re-engineered it and made it perform just that little bit better than the original.
