Crack 300 w/ Gold Tapered spool

3 posts in this topic

I have a new never used Crack 300 with a gold tapered spool I was told was developed in England for a long cast contestant.

 

Does anyone know about this reel? I know its heavy (like a VS300) but being new and never used makes it very interesting to me and Id like to find out if it has collectibility interest.  

 

Thx

That spool was made for distance casting -the Luxor became CRACK-they were the surf reel of choice back in the day-I believe Van Staal copied the reels-- that's how popular they were-I still use a couple of mine that I Van Staaled--you have a nice collectable reel--rreelman

Yes I have seen those tapered gold spools in the 70's and was told at the time they were casting competition spools. I believe they were accented with red chenille around the lower spool flange as well. Never used one.
