l wonder what my 1996 VS 15-page catalog is worth, in almost mint condition. Wow, not one listed on eBay.

 

There is a lot of great stuff in the 1996 catalog, you were covered with just about everything needed for stripbass fishing, those were his hay day years, too bad he couldn't keep the company going.

Do you know how that was done, and what process was used? l can't blow it up enough to see if it was cut or some sort of decal work.

First thing I thought of when I saw it was acid etching....

What would be the value of it or it’s hard to say the one I’m looking at has the stripped bass

 

Stripped bass... if they start streaking to KFC??!!

How about this USA made vs200 serial number 2665

BE1DF7B3-3A31-453F-8346-123C2A276D68.jpeg

I sold one to a friend for $700 last year in excellent condition.
 

That early reel has a stainless main shaft (not titanium), unsealed PENN style drag (not waterproof), a transmission/pinion assembly that is pressed in, not held with slotted threaded retainer, smooth side cover (not the self service side cover).

I have no idea. When it was in their website there was more detail.

l had the same reel, there were times it was almost in posable to get the side cover off, l also had to make a special tool to get the pinion bearing off, the side cover ball bearing was press-fit bearing also that was a blunder on his part he didn't allow for hole shrinkage when parts where being anodized if you did anodizing you would know what l'm talking about, a part will increase in size, or hole size will shrink.

 

Tool for removing the pinion bearing the early VS reels.
