In very good condition for its age with only a few light signs of use, the drag is in perfect working order and is presently set up for left hand wind retrieve.
I have been collecting and dealing with Ari Hart reels for over 15 years and this is the first time I have heard of come across this. I can only imagine that Ari had some tie-up with Homosassa in Florida. (I will ask him next time I see him)
Everyday Ari Hart reels are becoming increasingly more collectible and difficult to find,whether you are buying one to fish with or add to your collection, either way it will be a pleasure to own.
