Anyone got a lazy grand or so....?

Post by Marrakai » Fri Aug 05, 2011 12:24 am

Is this some sort of a record?
Certainly must be well up there in the US lure stakes.

Still 11 hours to go if you are a punter....
..and reserve not yet met!

Probably a safer investment than the stock-market at present, I'm over 60 now, so I'm thinking of taking my Super (tax free now) and investing in gold or lures. lol

@Marrakai . . .

If its the seller I'm thinking of he's been feeding them out for the last 12 months along with all manner of other top shelf Heddons and Pfluegers etc.

They have been hitting 1000+ every time then when you try to find out what price they went for at the end they are shut down to 99c with no info??
The guy is a legit seller - maybe he gets offers from Japan that he can't resist which is where most of these go - to millionaires
Notice the reserve is not yet met!!

heh 1000$ is nothing i've seen lures being sold at 1500€(2 123$usd) over here, esp the old lures that old hermit toivo pylvänäinen made around 1930, he was actually the guy who taught lauri rapala when he was starting out so they are cultural historically pretty valuable for collectors. i would never pay that much for a lure though :D

Lures are good investment if you buy the right ones. And yes useful for the foragers lol

There's a niche market in every country - there's been a few big $$$ on older Aussie lures and they're not even that old!

I fear the $$$'s being invested in Aussie timbers by some, could be causing more harm than good. People feel that if they pay hundreds, for say a Newell or Moller, that the value will only increase. Not necessarily so, a bubble could be created whereby the value will eventually drop. Lure collecting has a very small exposure, compared to say stamp or coin collecting. I collect for enjoyment, not to make a profit down the line, however having said that, I've told my two sons that if I suddenly fall off the perch, not to fish or give away my collection. I think they got the message, when I explained the today value of some I've had upwards of 30yrs.

@Seaweed . . .

Tony, I agree with you and reckon the Aussie lure market is way overpriced and anybody buying these items thinking that they will keep going up and up will have a shock if they ever try to sell them as I feel many of them will be lucky to fetch the price paid. True collectors tho' don't care about money and would mortgage their house for the right lure. The reality is that we all have a budget and the value is in the ye of the beholder of the Newell or . . . .

I agree lures are far more fun than gold :)
