: Hardy Marquis #6 fly reel value?

I just bought the reel + extra spool + leather pouch on Ebay for $136 US. It's in good working order with minor wear. I'm not sure when it was manufactured. Just wondering if it's a good deal???

I'd say it's a very good deal. The reel alone has been going for 125 and up, typically. I would have expected to pay at least 160 for reel and spool.

Well, that helps thanks. It's my first Hardy and I'm still a young pup so I hope to treasure it for a long time. Is it true that the Marquis is known for being louder than the already loud old Hardys?

The Marquis is certainly one of the louder Hardys. It screams like the Viscount and St. John and all the other Hardys using the larger pawls, it's no problem to hear them when there's a fish on... Music to my ears. Sounds like you got a pretty good deal too!
