Wasn't sure where to put this, but thought Michael might be able to shed some light:

https://www.harfinflyreels.com/?fbclid= ... 1qfGhNGIN8

No prices or specs on the website, can't tell if it's worth a follow-up.

I'll check some of my sources and get back to you.

Prices listed on their website ranged from A$ 479-A$815. Sorry I don't spend that much on rod, reel, line, and flies combined and I've never lost a fish because of a reel fault.

The information I've got is that they are very good, well engineered and dependable. One of our club members has had a 4wt for a couple of seasons and has recently purchased an 8wt. Whether you want to pay what they are asking isn't my decision. I haven't payed that much for a reel and am well satisfied with the ones I have. However, each to his own.

Michael, thank you.

When I first looked I couldn't find the pricing or the specs.

I'm a fan of light, durable reels, and now that I know the pricing, I feel Lamson remains a better choice for me even though the specs on the one 7/8 looked decent.

I can get Waterworks Lamson for half, or less than the Harfins.

Edit: Nevermind above on specs. The LR 78 isn't a 7/8, it's a 3/4. Their naming convention is weird.

Their 7/8 (the LR90 :?: ) weighs 8.9 oz. That's 2x my Landon reels. Seems like saltwater hear range.
