Well, I'm breaking down and selling my system 8 and spare spool. This is the "made in england by Hardy" reel. Looks like a Hardy Marquis. Is in good shape. Isn't immaculate, but works great and will satisfy your needs. I am more into outfitting some rods and buying some rods now then keeping this reel. One spool is outfitted with a Cortland 444 WF9F line. The other is loaded with a cortland salmon/steelhead quick sinktip WF9F/S 444. Both lines are about a year old. Comes with backing. No Hardy cases with reels, sorry. $170 including shipping to the US. Will take any serious offers though, so don't be afraid to ask. I know the lines cost me almost $100.
