THE "IDIOT FACTOR"

Post by Fizza. » Fri Mar 27, 2015 8:19 am

A picture is said to be worth 1000 words lol lol lol

I'm not so sure about that -duh

Sometimes a picture could be a short story thumbsupsmilie

This beautiful "NOT" little reel is a toy, a direct drive toy in fact that Australia's foremost lure maker who shall remain nameless paid $138.00 dollars for around 6 or 7 yrs ago. lol lol lol

At the time he was relatively new to eBay and couldn't wait to share his news of winning an auction along with his not so good fortune with me yay He was a very excited young bloke at the time until the "said purchase" arrived in the mail lol

After a rather lengthy telephone conversation which contained many expletives the "said purchase" was sent to me in a sort of confidence type manner thumbsupsmilie bowsmilie

After 7 yrs I think it's time for the "said purchase" to be made public for all to see thumbsupsmilie lol howdy

It is pictured below with an old Shimano Chronarch and Chronarch spare spool to show the size of this magnificent "GAME REEL" which I believe it was purchased for. yay -duh lol

$138.00 crazysmilie

I can only imagine the reaction of when it was opened. I'm guess there was a lot of "f'ing and jeffing" going on. lol lol lol

My mate actually has a similar one with the matching rod. I'm pretty sure he will part with the rod for the right amount. thumbsupsmilie
