The Marquis series is machined from aircraft aluminum alloy bar-stock. Only the larger salmon sizes have survived. They have found extreme favor with Pacific Northwest steelhead anglers.
These new Marquis salmon reels are in three sizes: salmon one, two and three. They are built to the original design, but are much stronger than the original cast models.
Hardy made the new reels and spools interchangeable with all the originals. The new reels are all manufactured with the polished silver rim style that everyone agrees is the Marquis at its best. The the internal cam has been slightly redesigned to give an increased in range to the click-check friction. The most endearing quality of the Marquis series is the distinctive sound which is producds when a fish is taking line. This is the same sound that has been produced by Hardy Reels for over a hundred years. It is a jolly sound that when heard, tells every angler that life is very good.
