I saw that yesterday. I'm thinking about it as they guarantee the serial number less than 100. That makes a big difference to some of us who collect things. I wouldn't think about using it. Use your Capitan's Card and knock off another 74 bucks.
$665 isn't bad for a collector reel.
wouldn't use it??!........ maybe i didn't make such a good deal after-all
dumb idea huh....... i had planned on making my next purchase the 50VSX cuz i don't even like the 50VSW because the 2-speed feature has the handle set so far out to one side (and it's limited drag) but other than being heavy and bulky don'tcha reckon i could make do with it for chunking or sword fishing?....... i was thinking maybe it'd at least look good on a short-handle bent-butt in black and gold
i figgerred 150-200# backing w/topshhot would make up for lack of drag since i'd probably be using it mostly on private boats and only ocassionally on headboats
anyway, i thot it'd be kinda cool to make it part o'my travel set o'rigs and i can always hang that print on the wall for sumpin to look at
the 'shock factor' alone has gotta be worth something!....... can'tcha just see it out there on a headboat and everybody say, "Hey!... Look at that idiot fishing with an anniversary Penn!!!".......... (priceless!)
