Hey Darin,
              I've got the blue and the other yellow one.
 The blue one, is SO full of information, it gets bought out near every night when perusing the big sale sight !
 There's so much info in there, I certainly don't retain all of the info, so I constantly find myself cross referencing dates, reel characteristics etc.
 You will luv it Darin and wonder how you did without it......  Enjoy

The covers are getting worn on my books...and there are pages with greasy finger prints. I've referred to Mike's books in the middle of many reel assemblies. His use of photos solve many questions. Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words. Get the yellow covered book too Darin. It has every year's catalog reproduced...great for dating and identifying Penn reels.Cool

You can get lost for hours in the books.....I packed mine up when we moved 6 months ago and haven't come across them yet...guess there are a few more boxes to go through  Embarrassed. Bill

The author of those books is a member of the Facebook group "Vintage Penn Reels", and often chimes in there, regarding questions about older PENN reels.
Ordering direct from the author insures that he receives payment for his hard work.
