  1. It might seem like a foolish question, but someone asked me the other day where the term "Rattler" came from in regard to Donny Musso metal lip swimmers and I really couldn't say. That got me thinking about Torpedo, although I imagine it has something to do with the shape. They also wanted to know when a Rattler became a Troller; was it size or design? Pine and Maple are used to differentiate Torpedos in regard to type of material used and, according, the depth that they swim at. Bobby G. also has plugs that are designated Torpedos, but he also has Donny Jrs. and Srs. Are these three the same designs, just different sizes.? I think I have too much time right now on my hands and my wandering mind has been spending too many hours contemplating plugs. I'd love to hear back from any source that might be able to clear up my confusion. Thanks in advance. Dave
  2. Hi Kevin - I just want to say again your willingness to start this thread. Sam and Roy made it clear that they feel I didn't do my research before bidding on these plugs and that I somehow was blaming Mr. Jones for not babysitting me. That's the furthest from the truth because I knew what I was getting into and I think the plugs I got are cool. I don't agree with Sam and Roy about helping folks out since someone starting out could make a bad purchase and not be aware of it. I once purchased a plug from someone in the club and the box it was in turned out to be a fake. No amount of research would have helped me discover this before I bought it. Ultimately, I did my research, trying to find out where the fraud started and I managed to find out more than I wanted and decided not to throw anyone under the bus. I definitely learned the hard way about certain aspects of the plug collecting world. I think one of the goals of SWLCC should be to encourage newcomers to get into plug collecting, but if they make a bad purchase or two that an experienced member of the club could help them avoid, I don't see the harm in that. Clearly, Sam and Roy don't agree with me and that's OK. I belong to the SWLCC, but I can tell you from personal experience that I learned pretty quickly to watch out for myself and that the sense of right and wrong in plug collecting is a moving target. Dave P.S. - I appreciate the note about a warning message on the SWLCC Facebook page, but I don't monitor it all the time. Shame on me!
  3. Kevin - Thanks for opening up this discussion; I bought all of the flaptails he had and obviously overpaid, but I don't care. I think the flaps are original and the work is really well done, so they make nice additions to my collection. As some folks have pointed out, there was clear explanation from him. Could someone who saw them earlier before they went to eBay said something to other collectors? Most likely and it would have been appreciated. By the way, nice (what looks like) Russo Mr. Jones. I assume it has something identifying writing on it. Dave
  4. Closing this down. Going to reorganize and perhaps list each style along. Thanks to all who purchased plugs and SOL for making this forum available. Dave
