Jon B's Shimano Metanium MGL XG sold for $9,500?!?!?!?

Recommended Posts

Not sure how many of you guys saw this but it appears Jon B. (Fishing the Midwest) sold one of his reels for $9,500 on ebay.

Seems fishy (pun intended) to me. Looking at the bidding history a lot of bidders have little to no feedback scores.

Proceeds went to charity but I wonder if this one really sold.

What do you guys think?

Just my opinion its BS. But probably could have got $100K if it hadn't had the "minor scratches". :rolleyes: 

Ever hear of the internet? Well don't believe everything you see, read, or hear on it.

The proceeds were going to be donated to charity. Sucks if his "fans" jacked up the bidding and bailed. I saw his other reels all went for ~$300-500.

So you'd rather watch bill dance fish a private ranch? Lol 

 

I don't know who these kids are you speak of.. or whom John b is... But if it gets the younger generation into fishing I don't see it as all that bad ? Alot of grown men are screaming for attention with their videos not just the youth ! 

 

Is their no beneficial gain to watching their videos (whomever "they" are) ? I mean obviously not for you... You seem pretty annoyed.. but  say someone in their youth without a mentor ? 

 

These kids could be doin drugs and other crimes ! And although being an attention ***** may be annoying...   Could be worse... Right . ?

I don't watch any of it.  Shows I watch about fishing are Lunkerville, MLF, and Hunt for Big Fish.  Far more interesting.

Jon B is one of the more entertaining members of the Googan Squad. He is talented when it comes to camera work, video editing and back round music. He has traveled to some interesting places to fish.

 

Is he juvenile sometimes, sure. He reminds me of myself when I was that age traveling with my buddies to fish.

 

Some of his early videos were actual educational types about baits and techniques.

 

If I can't fish I like to watch fishing vids, any fishing vids. I think I need help.

I stopped watching fishing videos when they went from being entertaining to self promotional. Been a while, now that I think about it.
