DECEMBER 2010   

 A GREAT ENDING TO A GREAT YEAR !!!

 FEATURED REEL:

 A Zebco CF Zero Hour Reel that was signed by R. D. Hull

for those who do not know who he was, he was the watchmaker from Snyder, Texas who brought his proto-type spin cast reel to Zebco in the mid 1940’s and the rest was history.

the seller also included photo’s of Mr. Hull and himself with the listing. He was a rep for Zebco and had Mr. Hull sign one of his reels at a meeting at the Zebco plant.

The starting price was $20,000.00 which I thought was a bit high.

A very neat reel but there were “NO BIDS”

time will tell if the seller decides to relist his reel !!??
