The $47.50 Pfleuger reel in 1960 converted to 2010 dollars: $345.71. Most expensive Pfleuger reel i can find at bass pro shops: $199.99. Wonder if it's just as good or cheaper. Anyone know? Better? Inquiring minds and all.

Would be nice if one of those guys in the vid shot this thing over a chronograph, would be curious how fast it gets a .46 caliber lead ball. The wiki article claims .45 ACP velocities which would be in the 900-1100 fps range depending on bullet weight. Would definitely get somebody's attention if that's the case.
