Lets see, I just picked up a mint spool for a Marquis 1 for 40 bucks, a golden Featherweight with spool mint for 90 bucks and got my Bougle Mark V 4 inch brand new on e-bay for 310 bucks. Good luck isn't needed, but like I said earlier, beating the bushes, finding ebay auctions that end at 4 in the morning, checking on the Hardy folks on Vancouver Island and the fifty million other ways to find a deal on a Hardy if explored often will result in some great deals. If I listened to folks like you I wouldn't own 8 of them from LHW Perfects with spools, Golden St. Aiden, St. John to (whatever you like) and got them all in new condition for great prices. It can be done. I will agree with you on the Kineya reels, I own a 301B and spool and its a great little reel.
