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

I’ve seen them go for 1000-3000. Depending on overall quality of reel. That one looks clean.

Got this done at Things Remebered" at Roosevelt Field Mall. Of course you have to dismantle your reel and just give them the sideplate and tell them it's not worth over $300 because they won't engrave anything worth over $300. I kept it simple with my name, they do have other styles but nothing extravagant. It took 30min.

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.

Let me know when it goes onto BST.

I believe he was referring to the engraved VS you didn’t buy. 
 

Curious why you were trying to sell the VS200S(gold) you just bought?

Just so you know that your reel foot has been replaced. That is not the original one for that model. So I would not consider the reel a collectors item.
