Value Of DAM Quick 1001 Spinning Reels

Can anyone tell me why this model is so expensive? Did they make that few, and if so, how can I tell with the serial number? Thanks.

Re: DAM Quick 1001 Value

Hey Norm,

I assume that those reels are so expensive is because of what usually makes older things more valuable...

It's vintage. Crafted well. Good demand. And rare.

All of those reasons are what gives it such a high collective value. I don't see too many of those reels for sell either. I guess you are lucky if you have one.

Sorry, but I don't know the answer to your other question about the serial number thing.

I own a vintage Quick 2002[model]. These numbers indicate a Series that was produced in late 70's into 80's. Arguably, the best reels that they ever produced. Quality parts inside and out, they were very well built, and their 2012 series are still using tech from these vintage reels.

Cherish my Quick 1001

My husband was going to throw out my Quick 1001. He had no idea that 1) it was expensive, and 2) it was so well made.

I'm having the same problem as one of the other posts, in that the bail will no longer flip back when I turn the handle. It will return with good tension when the silver lever under the bail mechanism is depressed.

I'm hoping that someone can tell me how to correct this problem. I'm willing to take it to a reel repair person, but wonder how many are familiar with this reel since it's 40+ yrs old.

Can anyone help me out on this?
