This reel was given to me by Doug Hannon "The Bass Professor" before he died. I will write that on the box. Please start the bidding at $100 - includes shipping - bidding ends March 1, 2020 at 8pm.

Doug never got the credit he deserved. He was a genius inventor ... who like a little vodka cranberry every now and again. laugh He was an interesting person to hang with. I always enjoyed conversations with Doug.

Color me stupid. I was just looking at the box and noticed Doug did sign this one as well (it was just a little faded). Sorry, I'm bidding on my own auction item now. I bid $100 to keep it. Money goes towards getting the Billy Dyson Foundation up and running, so what the heck.

Really neat story JP.

I've seen one of the prototypes down a Tony's place in Seguin. Never got the chance to meet the Gentleman, but I bet I could listen to his stories for hours.

Dang homie. I was gonna go in at $125.

Good on you though!

If I recall that design was supposed to eliminate line twist on spinning reels by "ticking" the line as it passed over the spool. Bass Pro made a knock off. It never really caught on so I thought it was a gimmick but I would love to own one and give it a whirl.

Back up bid $125 lol
