Pocket Rocket ID needed

10 posts in this topic

Another impulse auction site buy. Can anyone ID this. I think I have ruled out Gibbs, its bigger and heavier than the Gibbs and Gibbs have the belly hook. Very sloppy tail wrap has me wondering if some garage builder made it or rewired it. Looking to ID the white sparkle the Gibbs is pictured for comparison.

I have a small danny ..danny plug I believe had been rebuilt..it has the very same exact tail wrap....tail  hook looks like one of dannys as well as body an paint---but the glitter is to big....and no red chin....I'd say a danny rebuild.

I have an early Pichney from around 1984, it’s the black/ silver one. I think the all black one is a later Pichney but I’m not sure. It has 4 belly weights. 

The paint job looks like too much Liberace to be Danny’s.

Yeah I have a few Pichneys and they are almost always smaller than this one and more tapered at the top.. Your large black may be a Beachmaster

The glitter on this white one has me thinking it looks a lot like something Bob Pond may have done. Did Pond ever make pocket rockets?
